Sheep, herd dogs, guard dogs, how to manage them and what they cost, shearing and marketing wool, making money, saving money, and helping the environment – this 8-minute, prize-winning video has it all!
From 1997 to 2003, Kathy Voth directed a research project using goats to create firebreaks to protect homes and firefighters from wildland fires. These excerpts from the federal Joint Fire Science Program’s “Fire Science Brief” on her project describes the project and its findings. Thanks to Rachel Clark for putting this brief together! Learn what goats can accomplish and why other livestock are good firefighters too!
