So far, the only dead things we have had to dispose of have been birds. Spring is coming, and with it probably several births among our sheep. As we breed our goats too, I am nervous about possible deaths that I might have to deal with. If you don't have a digger, how in the world can you dig a big enough/deep enough hole for larger livestock? I have seen people say they leave them out for coyotes, but won't that just create a problem with predators looking to your place for food? And geez, what do you do with cattle or horses when they pass away? Our old tractor doesn't have a front PTO, and buying a back hoe is big bucks. How do you get rid of corpses?
