We don’t raise chickens for eating but we do use beef, sheep, goats, turkeys and kangaroos. My husband and I have an electrical business. He’s an electrician but originally was a butcher. A very handy man!We raise feeder pigs up to slaughter size and stock the freezer. Lamb is our red meat and I raise chickens. Nothing like home grown meat!
Occasionally we shoot a kangaroo for eating. Sometimes we go out spotlighting at night for foxes and see 150-200 kangaroos. So we feel like we’re farming them! They eat a lot of pasture and are very destructive on the fences.Tell us, what does kangaroo taste like?
We can apply for tags (culling quota) but we don’t want to do that at the moment. It’s quite a big job, professional shooters need to have access to your property and arranging for transport to processors. Taking one roo every now and then and scaring them off at night and during the day is preferable for us than mass slaughter of our country’s national emblem. We need to have better boundary fences.Wow -- herds of them!! Never realized they hung out in that large a crowd. Somehow I can see how they'd tear up a lot more than fences. Some can get pretty large, too.
That many could destroy a pasture quickly. Any way to deter them from hanging out? Or are there seasons when they migrate to other areas?
