Christmas Trees Sought As Treat For Colorado Goats

Posted: Updated:

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - Your trash could become a holiday treat for some goats in western Colorado.
    
The Top of the Hill Ranch in Collbran, about 40 miles east of Grand Junction, is offering to pick up discarded Christmas trees from nearby homes to give their goats some extra roughage during the winter. Rancher Teresa Fletcher tells KKCO-TV (http://bit.ly/19sVwtM ) that the goats can devour a tree in less than an hour.
    
The Little Mooo Ranch in Fruita and the 5-R Livestock Company in Loma are also collecting trees for the goats.
