Get Goats


That is my answer to this problem.

It worked here. And as to the fencing thing, the guy we bought the original border collies from had a business out in California grazing goats on the power lines to keep down brush. One man, one dog, no fence needed.

That's got to be one active and vigilant border collie! Good luck with the goats.

Do you also milk your goats? I see goat's milk for sale at fancy food shops, so I'm wondering if their milk brings a higher price than cow's milk. Anyway, I love your brush solution.

The goats do great here, love everything but the worst inbloom stickers weeds! Good luck! I hope they work well for you.

Joated, it does take a good dog to work goats as they don't stick together too well

WW, actually I was suggesting these goats for Amsterdam. kind of tongue in cheek. However, I did used to milk goats and I really like goats's milk. Using goats to browse unwanted brush is becoming quite a trend in some areas.

Linda, I like to see your pics of your goats. This was kind of just a joking suggestion for an area municipality that is having trouble with brush. We don't actually have any goats just now, although we have often in the past and may again. I like goats' milk.
