Fire Fighting Goats Deployed at TomKat Ranch
TomKat Ranch has teamed up with Goatapelli Foundation and their herd of 26th generation “browsers” (animals that prefer brush, weeds, and woody matter to grass) to remove dry, parched vegetation from the landscape to promote conditions in which wildfires will not start as easily or spread as rapidly. Fire prevention has risen in importance over the past few years. This April, TomKat Ranch partnered with Lani Malmberg, founder, and owner of Goatapelli Foundation, a goat grazing service that uses managed goat herds as an effective, ecologically beneficial wildfire prevention tool.
