Goats Eat Most Plants
There are a few types of plants that will make goats sick, such as rhodos and laurels, but before the goat herd arrives we will survey your property to make sure it’s safe for the animals. When the herd is working on your property the goat wrangler will assist them in reaching taller plants and provide nutritional supplements and water. At times, the goats may also receive some hay to help stimulate their appetites and meet their nutritional requirements.
Weed and Brush Clearing with Goats
Renting goats for brush control is simple. A temporary fence is installed around the area of land to be cleared. A herd of goats is brought in to quietly munch the vegetation. The time it takes to clear the site depends upon many factors, including the size of the area, the topography, and the composition and density of the vegetation. We can give you an accurate estimate of the time once we know a little more about your site.
Goats are natural climbers and enjoy steep or rough terrain. They can go places that a “Brush Hog” cannot. A goat wrangler stays on site to take care of the herd; there may be a small amount of brush cutting that the goat wrangler will take care of by hand.
When the goats have finished munching away, they are herded back into the herdhauler, the fence is removed and the land is clear of unwanted vegetation.
In many cases, you’ll find that renting a herd of goats to clear your land will cost less than some traditional methods. When you take into consideration the costs of clearing land by hand, equipment rental, labor, permits, and debris disposal you can see the clear cost benefits of hiring our herd!
