Ovine weed control
Ovine weed controls are becoming more popular. Sheep are being recruited to control kudzu in the Southeast, and now we hear that a company based near Sacramento, Calif., Goatweedeaters.com, is renting South African Boer crossbreeds to get rid of weeds. Another company, Ewe4ic Ecological Services (www.goatapelli.com) provides similar services.
The appeal of such a strategy is that it avoids any conflicts between pesticides and the public.
