ECO Goats

Saw this on an article today, and thought it was pretty funny. Goats are just even more awesome. So I decided to share, but I am not a clever man when it comes to computers. Some of these images are Gifs, but I didn't know how to make this whole PS paint (the MonaLisa it is) with partial animated photos.

If you want to see the full article and its gifs:

Going to call bullshit on one part of this. The 'toxic' plant they have circled? Yeah, that's common clover. The other plants in the same picture are fescue grass, and creeping jenny. The other stuff the goats are pictured eating is bush honeysuckle, wild geraniums, and a freakin maple tree. The only reason people call in goats to take care of overgrown vegetation is when people are too lazy or scared of using proper chemical application.

Thought this sounded a bit crazy - so I decided to do some number crunching.

60 goats operating at 25c per hour. That's $15 per hour, okay? That sounds a bit daunting, right?

Then you have to pay for them throughout the whole day, as the goats will stay on the land through nights as well. 15 x 24 = 360 You are paying $360 dollars per day, looking bad now huh?
Fast forward a week and the goats have cleared 1.6 acres, at a cost to you of $2520. $2520, that is insane, does anybody else here grasp how small an acre actually is?
I realise that Machinery would cost more than twice as much, so the goats sound good, huh?
However, on my farm for a job like this, I hire two other guys, which costs me $400, and a few gallons of pesticide, which cost varies depending on how specific, but I buy at about $200-300 and we could get this done in less than a week, and the weeds wouldn't grow back, unlike with the goats.

If im paying $2520 per week for some goats for a job which I could do for at most $700, can't I expect talking goats, wearing collars of solid gold, who can grant me three wishes or something?

the point is that it's eco-friendly and cheaper than using machinery.

Reminds me of the time I set loose a bunch of praying mantises and spiders in my room to get rid of stuff like mosquitos and flies.

They have some goats going around the city I live in, its pretty cool.

Also, onetime there were some police officers out there watching them too. Like a giant petting zoo, goats and pigs......

That's my goat!

In seriousness this is our society these days. We could go the more intelligent less primitive path, but no, we'd rather fuck things up like idiots. Sometimes however, intelligence prevails and perhaps the most important thing to remember is,

motherfucking goats

and goats are pretty efficient in the long turn, unlike sheep, goats eat the whole plant, including the roots, so the weeds won't grow back

Using a cheap and reliable alternative to risky and harsh industrial crap.
A rice farmer whose name currently escapes me does/did the same thing up in China - instead of expensive and toxic pesticides and insecticides, he just lets ducks roam loose on his rice paddies. They eat insects & lighter weeds, pack the mud down and keep the dirt fertilized.
