Pasture Management with Small Ruminants

Sheep can mow your lawn, and goats will gladly rid your pastures and fence lines of poison ivy and woody brush.

Standard sized donkeys with a family history of disliking canines make excellent guard animals for your sheep and goats. And their thrifty use of most forages means that you won’t need to invest in special feed for them as you do with dogs.
