Vegetation Management Services
Weeds and brush are a problem on many rural properties.
In addition to being a fire hazard, they compete for
water, sunlight and nutrients, restricting the growth
of more desirable grasses and other plants. Unwanted
vegetation can also reduce the value of your property
and limit the use of pastures for grazing or recreation.
When used correctly, the browsing goat defoliates
and weakens undesirable plants. Goats prefer to eat
coarse, brushy material. Many of these plants are avoided
by grazing animals such as cattle, sheep and horses.
The browsing goat returns nutrients trapped in weeds
and brush to the soil through their manure and allows
more desirable plants access to the nutrients they
need to grow.
Goats will eat many different plants,
including, but not limited to:
- Blackberry bushes
- Bull thistle
- Wild Rose
- Scrub Oak
- Star thistle
- Oak saplings
- Pine saplings
- French broom
- Coyote bush
- Scotch Broom
