Crow’s Nest: One of these does not belong…

October 28, 2013


Meet the prescribed grazing crew at Crow’s Nest for 2013. Duffy the goat blends in pretty well with the Jersey steers, and is holding his own with the big guys. We just moved them this weekend to their winter pastures, so the “prescribed” part of their grazing—for wildlife habitat improvement—is finished until next spring. We’ll be working in these habitats ourselves this winter, removing the red maples and multiflora rose that shade out the desired vegetation. I view our work as being in partnership with theirs; there’s no way we could do it all ourselves, and yet working together we can improve their summer pastures for wildlife as well as for suitable grazing and browsing.
