Google’s Mowing with Goats

I just had to smile at this post on Google’s blog about their decision to mow some of their property with goats. How utterly practical!

They used a company called California Grazing for the job. The California Grazing site does a great job of explaining exactly why it is that goats are a green choice. Too bad the folks who take care of the fields near us and just spent days getting it mowed haven’t heard of them. I think the goats would have been a better choice. Certainly the school kids walking by would have gotten quite the kick out of seeing the goats at work.

Perhaps the best part is that this apparently cost Google about the same as having the area mowed. Not bad, not bad at all.

    What a fun idea!! And green too! Gotta love google. That’s terrific. It really seems with most things green in the end it doesn’t cost more. You just have to see the big picture. Maybe I should get a goat?!! My hubby would sure like not to have to push mow our lawn anymore!

    I hate goats lol. First started when I was little and a goat at a petting zoo tried to eat my sweater then I would pet sit for a friend who had goats and they were always getting out and a pain lol.

    I want sheep!
