In 2016, I decided that I needed to be my own boss, so I could chose when I could work as my life had changed drastically after having West Nile Virus. I couldn't work the 12 to 16 hours a day working for others, I needed to be able to take breaks to rest.  So, I looked into the goat rental industry.



Yes, goat herders do rent out goats to do weed and brush control and you don't need very many animals to make good money battling weeds but it does help if you do large properties.  This blog will cover what I have learned as a goat rental professional and if you are interested in becoming a goat rental professional, I can tell you that there is a need for us as once people find out about you, the business will keep you busy.  The beauty of the business is that you can chose what you want to do and the best part, people pay you to feed your goats for free!
