For the next two weeks, goats will move west along Crow Creek to eat vegetation, including noxious weeds, which helps reduce vegetation in floodways.

The goats were relocated to Crow Creek after spending two weeks eating vegetation along Dry Creek. Utilizing goats for this purpose has become a favorite for locals and is substantially less expensive than human labor.

The goats are contained to a specific area using a portable electric fence and trained border collies. Goat Green, LLC operates and oversees the month-long process. The project is funded through the Fifth Penny Sales Tax.
