There’s no machine that can do what a goat can do
“Goats will eat plants livestock and wildlife won’t, such as noxious weeds, and return the nutrients from these plants back to the soil. Combined with reseeding, targeted grazing should improve wildlife habitat by increasing native plant abundance and diversity.” Kristy Wallner, BLM Range Management Specialist
Working with nature better is often an overlooked step that scientists now say is crucial to limiting the worst impacts of climate change. Goat grazing is part of this new way of thinking.
Our mission at the Goatapelli Foundation is to train and support goat graziers for weed & fire management in the era of climate change. This consequently helps rehabilitate the earth’s soils.
Goats can clear vegetation and recycle it. The advantages of employing goats are numerous.
Systematic goat grazing is a proven, effective solution to restore soil health. Healthy soil sucks carbon from the sky. Sucking greenhouse gases from the sky curbs negative climate change problems and heals degraded soil conditions.
We know it works because we’ve been working with the goats to address degraded, polluted lands back into building living, functioning ecosystems for years. And now we want to train you to do it too because climate change is upon us and it’s going to get messy and we are out of time.
Goats eat invasive species, that apply selection pressure to unwanted plants and the desired plants become the better competitors in that setting.
Goats are one of the best fire fuel reduction tools available. Goats eat the understory plants that make up the fire fuel ladder, remove the fire tinder, thus prevent wildfires. As they eat that fire fuel ladder they recycle through their gut and trample the resulting fertilizer into the ground and build soil organic matter – all at the same time. They are self-propelled, land-healing machines.
Do you have a wildfire concern? Noxious weed problem? Depleted soils? Soil erosion? Are you unable or unwilling to apply herbicides or use machinery to manage these issues?
The effectiveness of goat grazing for land restoration is a safe, cost-effective method of healing watersheds and reducing wildfires.
Herbicides are not cheaper.
Nature is dangerously out of equilibrium. We have lost stability and resilience in our economic, environmental, and human health. We are in crisis mode with the quality and quantity of freshwater available and nutritious food.
