Advantages of Goats for Land Management
Goats are a natural alternative to harmful herbicides and pesticides.
Goats eat 25% of their body weight each day which makes them very efficient when used to clear land.
Goats help to restore soil health by:
Eliminating unwanted vegetation When a goat eats the vegetation they eat the flower heads so the plant does not have a chance to re-seed. Once they eat the leaves of the vegetation it cannot photosynthesize and build a root system.
They provide fertilizer, which returns nutrients to the soils.
goats hoof aerate the silk while working their fertilizer right into the soil.
