Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone had some input on something I'd like to try this spring. I live on 20 heavily wooded acres, I currently have ten nigerian dwarf goats, 5 wethers and 5 does. My goats currently free range on all the acreage during the day, usually accompanied by one or both of the livestock pits. They are housed in an acre pasture with their goat barn at night for their safety. In the spring I'd like to start clearing out some of the wooded areas for more pasture space down the road and have heard that fencing off small portions of woods at a time and letting the goats work it down is a good way of clearing out the brush while leaving the mature trees behind. I'm curious if anyone has done this? I'm mostly wondering what size pen I should make, if an electric netting style pen would be adequate? I was thinking of keeping the 5 wethers in the pen, moving it as needed as they eat up the brush and then move them into their paddock at night to keep them safe. Any comments, suggestions, or thoughts are most welcome. Obviously before the goats would enter in each fenced off spot I'd check for noxious/toxic plants.. don't want any sick goats from yucky plants.
