Cost Summaries: on average a backyard within 5-8 miles of us starts at $800. Below is offered as a summary of costs and additional services we provide.
|SETUP COST:||started at $500.00* with the circled area (see map). Outside circle (see map) or special requirements to be quoted separately.||Setup includes delivery, setup of fences, set up of animal support, water, etc, and pickup.|
|SITE VISIT:||Required for better job estimating.||We will need to visit the site before we arrive to determine conditions and geography.|
|COST PER DAY:||$150.00||Generally jobs includes 8-10 goats and sheep (we mix sheep with goats to increase the types of vegetation consumed)|
|Land (Human) Clearing:||$50.00 per hour/per man||As needed, for land clearing in excess of 10-15 ft for setup of fencing and access to job site|
Sheep Fence: We use an electric net fence which is installed around area to be targeted. This keeps the good guys in and the bad guys out. Goats come with a trailer, which if the site allows, will be left for them, if not, other shelter will be evaluated.
Utilities and Shelter: We prefer to use a hose from domestic water and connection to an electrical outlet, but we have batteries and a water tank on board if necessary. We need to know ahead of time to plan.
Dangers: The biggest danger to the goats is domestic dogs. That cute little dog can become a predator when not supervised even when you think he’s just playing. Their presence also scares goats.
** Some plants are poisonous and need to be avoided. We will do the best we can to identify what we can during our site visit. Plus goats are smart and usually don’t eat what they don’t like.
We do what we can to ensure a safe location for the animals while on your property. However, if stolen or harmed, the cost to replace them would be $300.00 per animal. If injured, it would be the cost of the veterinarian bill.
