How Goats are Regenerating a Forest and Protecting this Town from Bushfire (Video)

A second cousin back in Missouri recently posted on Facebook about some work he'd done cleaning out fence rows on his mother's farm, mentioning in particular eastern red cedar and multiflora rose. I commiserated with him on the latter, which is invasive and a real nuisance. Someone else commented that he should consider getting some goats in there to clean things out, which sounded like a great idea to me. In the video above you'll get an idea, albeit from Australia, about the positive impact that planned foraging with goats can have on the land. They really are quite useful creatures.
