Privet eating goats
There seems to be a difference of opinion among goat keepers on the internet about allowing animals to eat privet. Some say it is poisonous. Others say they have fed their goats privet for years and their animals have proceeded to thrive. I fed privet to my goats last year. Apart from ivy, it was the only greenery available. My goats had no side effects. They liked the leaves. I've started chopping back branches of privet to feed to them again. I don't give them too much but, as with last year, they happily eat what they are given.
