VIDEO: Minnesota Goats Are Ready To Eat Your Christmas Tree!
"Wherever there's a need for a goat, I'll get a goat in there!"
The G.O.A.T. Christmas tree removal system is available an hour from Rochester, Minnesota, or IN Rochester if you want to rent the machines to do it. Well, not machines, really. Animals. And by animals, I mean goats!
Goats Are the G.O.A.T Christmas Tree Removal System
In Faribault, Minnesota, the community brings their Christmas trees (ALL decorations removed) to the White Sands Dog Park, and once there's a big ol' pile, Goat Dispatch takes over (Scroll down for video of the action).
I swear that's the real business name. Goat Dispatch. It's owned by Jake Langeslag, and he's dispatched goats all over Minnesota, the USA, and Rochester, too.
"Wherever there's a need for a goat, I'll get a goat in there," Jake told me in a recent call.
Do the Goats Think Christmas Trees Are A Special Treat?
First, I have to bust a Goat Myth. Goats have a bad reputation for eating just about everything including grandma's corset. But, according to Zoo Atlanta, that's only proof they like to explore with their moths...
Goats get their reputation for eating almost anything because they like to walk around and sample a wide variety of foods, as opposed to grazing a pasture like cows or sheep. Goats will eat hay, grasses, weeds, grain, and sometimes even tree bark! (Source)

Do Goats Like Christmas Trees?
James Rabe: So...do goats look at the trees as a once-a-year treat? An evergreen buffet?
Jake Langeslag: You know, when I watch them I can see they really enjoy the change in diet, but they tell me they like them, too.
James: Goats are chatty?
Jake: You have no idea.
