Naturally - With Goats!

GoatsRx - Prescribed Grazing Services exists to assist land owners / managers in SE MN with their vegetation management goals.

 
 

BENEFITS OF PRESCRIBED GRAZING

Prescribed Grazing offers the most natural form of vegetation management without having to use (or in combination with) herbicides or mechanical control.

Soil Health

  • Natural Fertilizer

  • Light footed - goat hooves do a great job of lightly aerating the soil but not drastically affecting the topsoil as to cause erosion. Erosion can be an issue when using heavy mechanical equipment to clear areas.

  • With the addition of the goats natural fertilizer / organic matter (manure pellets) the natural balance of beneficial soil fungi can be rebuilt. A balance that is disrupted with the use of herbicides. Weed seeds however, are not left behind due to the efficient digestive system of the goats.

The Process

Whether you are looking for a one-time area clean-up or a multi-season management project, we would be happy to visit with you. With your inquiry on the contact page, tell us a little bit about the project in mind.  We will then get back to you with additional questions and schedule a time to visit the property.  From there, we can put together a plan and subsequent pricing. There is no 'cookie cutter' approach to prescribed grazing. We will work with you to come up with the best solutions taking into account budget, timeline and project goals.
