It was just on the News here in the Burgh that the City of Pittsburgh was using goats to clear a very steep section of land that they wanted to use. They wanted to plant flowers and other blooming shrubs on the land to beautify it, it was along a major highway and had many invasive species grow there. The goats got almost the whole thing cleaned out in one day. They figured that a second day would finish the job. The news caster said that they were afraid to put volunteers on the land because of the steep slope. The goats of course did not mind at all. It was about .10 th of an acre so the goats cleared it out quickly.
Never doubt that a small group of dedicated people can change the world, indeed it is the only thing that ever has.

I'll bet the goats don't mind. This sounds like the perfect application for this. Thanks for sharing this. I'll have to take some photos of the acrobatics my girls are performing on the cliffs and deadfall around the woods around me.

Happy goats. Meat and milk. Free forage. Getting paid to graze.

Win, win, win, WIN!
