American Goat Federation

I can remember some years ago seeing a truck filled with what looked to be men returning from a successful hunt with a large buck tied down to the rack on the roof. The pretty young lady that I had been courting commenced to go on a long and angry rant proclaiming among other things that these bloodthirsty “murderers” had just killed Bambi.

Now, I had grown up in the mostly rural (and rarely recognized) region of New York state where many people harvested deer and other game animals as a way to supplement their income by hunting. This saved them a small fortune in the price they would have been forced to pay had they purchased meat from the supermarket to provide food for their families; so seeing a dead deer tied down to the roof of a truck was hardly something I found strange or bothersome.

The truth was, I had some pretty strong contrary thoughts on the topic myself, but I thought better of sharing them with her at that moment because I figured it would blow my chances of getting a second date. That was until she asked me if we could go get something to eat at McDonald's and she ordered a double cheeseburger without even batting an eye. Having grown up in “cow country,” I was well aware of the way in which cattle were killed and processed in the slaughterhouse before starting their journey to supermarkets and fast food joints in various forms, including burger patties. However, even my teenage hormones weren’t powerful enough to override my burning desire to point out her hypocrisy.

You can find a full spectrum of medications and health aids for your goats at your local feed store. Note that some of these supplies are for the author’s chickens.
