Benefits of Targeted Grazing
There are only a few effective ways to manage aggressive species of plants: grazing, mowing/brush hogging (mechanical), and spraying chemicals. Over time, mechanical removal and/or spraying (using fuel/herbicide) can degrade a landscape and be harmful to the ecosystem.
On the other hand, grazing (ruminate) animals, such as goats, cows, and sheep, do not need gasoline or harsh chemicals to make a difference! They add nitrogen and nutrients back into the soil and can improve the landscape as long as they are not confined in one place for too long. These animals have the ability to use the very plants that are causing you problems as their fuel.
