Goats have a long standing reputation of being able to eat things that most animals will not touch. This makes goats one of the very best natural weed trimmers and bush whackers around. Goats are often referred to as "little cows" that eat what cows will not. Goats will walk through succulent green grass and go eat the weeds. Goats raised for meat are much better suited for grazing and clearing land than are the dairy breeds.
