Not long ago a friend of mine asked why I didn't just put the goats into the Apple orchard and use them for weed and grass control. Think of it this way: offer your family a choice of salads. One salad is made up of plain lettuce. The other salad is fruit-flavored and delicious! Now offer the choice of eating grass or eating apple trees to a bunch of happy, always hungry goats. What do you think might happen?
