Making Progress

Now you can really see the difference between where the goats are grazing and the other side of the fence. The buckthorn has been grazed once. In 2-4 weeks we go back to this patch where there is plenty of new growth, which is even more delicious to the goats. It takes about 3 hard grazings to kill the buckthorn and allow the grasses to return. In the winter it is now possible to go in and cut down the rest of the bigger saplings mechanically. By 1-2 years this are will be returned to full use.
