Default Rent-a-Goat in Action! Clearing Brush the Way Nature Intended It

My wife sent me this article. Pretty basic idea really. Use goats to clear places machines can't easily reach. Works will, works cheap, and very easy!

Back in 1963, I saw a small herd of goats eating grass etc off the top of one of the ammo bunkers in a large ammo dump.

Kinda look like this.. But with bigger doors.


Not too easy to mow. And you really don't want anything that could start a bush fire..
The fuel dump (tank farm) was right next door..


Yeppers, the navy was sending a goat where no man wants to go..

There's a house in a nearby town (Princeton) where they keep a herd of 6 pygmy goats (they're about 2 feet high) that keeps their fenced-in lawn mowed. And there's another suburban house in Marietta that has a pair of belted galloway calves mowing their lawn. I've been watching them grow over the summer and suspect they will be put in the freezer at the end of the mowing season. So instead of being an expense item, their lawn mowing will end up more than paying for itself.
