Are you tired of using those chemicals to get rid of weeds, but can’t think of any easy way to do it?
Goats are a great way to take care of possible fire hazards and noxious weeds.
The role of goats as biological control agents will become increasingly important in the future due to environmental concerns and elevated costs of other control methods such as mechanical cutting and herbicide application.- http://bit.ly/1choVmn
There has been a resurgence of using goats to clear unwanted vegetation in North America since 1990, when herds were used to clear dry brush from California hillsides thought to be endangered by potential wildfires. Goats will remove invasive species not easily removed by humans, including (thorned) blackberry vines and poison oak.
Goat grazing, also called conservation grazing, or targeted grazing when used to meet specific goals for rangeland, is generally less intensive than practices such as prescribed burning, but still needs to be managed to ensure that overgrazing does not occur. The practice has proven to be beneficial in moderation in restoring and maintaining grassland and heathland ecosystems. The optimal level of grazing will depend on the goal of conservation, and different levels of grazing, alongside other conservation practices, can be used to induce the desired results.
Historic threats to grasslands primarily began with land conversion to crop fields. However, this threat shifted to improper land management techniques and more recently to the expansion of woody species of plants due to a lack of management and to climate change. These threats hinder the ecological importance of grassland communities. Grasslands are a carbon sink, and benefit livestock. Ecologically, if managed properly, conservation grazing can help to restore these historic ecological assets. — Wikipedia
Goats won’t damage the environment like chemicals, in fact they help the environment by making it look nice and fertilizing it.
