Goat Patrol

So I have to say this is one of the coolest things I have seen in a long time. Goat Patrol is a company that comes to your home, they set up fences, then unleash a herd of goats onto an area that needs to be cleared. goat This is ingenious because if you have ever seen kudzu, which you can eat by the by, this stuff has a habit of taking over in an unreal way.

The biggest advantage to this method is of course it’s pretty ecofriendly and the goats will truck through some really dense stuff. Its basically an all you can eat buffet for them. The appeal to me is if you have poison ivy or poison sumac, they love it! The owner says they seem to specifically seek it out and if you ever had to clear this stuff yourself, you know how much of a godsend this would be.
I think it would be interesting to see if you would be able to pool your neighbors goats (if you live in a farming area) you could get 100 goats going and make serious headway.
