I have noticed quite a few posts lately about cows/calves dieing lately. As this is probably inevitable as long as one chooses to raise animals, I have a question for you guys with smaller tracts of acreage? What do you do with the dead animals? I assume that you guys on large acreage just dig a hole and bury them or drag them to the back and let the wild animals get em, but what about us guys on 20 or so acres, near the city who can't just let em lie. Is there a place that picks them up, such a rendering plant or something? Is there any value in the dead animal? I dont have a large enough place where I could bury a large animal and it not be noticed by the neighbors. Hoping it never happens, but being a realist I know it is a possibility.
