Ruminate On This...


goats on campus, originally uploaded by tom_robey.

Currently at a cost of $750 per day, a herd of 60 goats is eating ivy, blackberries and assorted other goodies along the southeastern most section of Ranier Vista on the University of Washington campus. There's gotta be someone out there that knows if this is cost effective, better for the environment or hilarious...

Why not?
I know in the Rotterdam harbour area they hire sheep to keep the grass short between storage-tanks,
which usually have little dikes around them against possible spills; difficult for mechanical mowing.

The goats are gone, but not their aroma. I wonder how long it will last. If it's for more than a week, I bet there will be a bunch of football fans complaining. Rainier Vista is very close to an often traveled route to the stadium!
