Goats help clean up habitat
After all that modern science has provided, sometimes Mother Nature still wins out. Last week more than 120 goats were released on Flint Hills Resources property along the bluffs of the Mississippi River. Turns out, grazing goats provide a cheap and efficient way to reduce overgrowth and control invasive species.
The goats, which belong to the Goat Peak Ranch, are part of a new approach for maintaining and restoring natural habitat along the Mississippi River.
