Goats In The Woods


 

Wisely-controlled browsing of Northeast woodlands by goat herds may increase incomes and reduce costs to goat owners, decrease woody plant control costs to woodlot owners and reduce the forest area treated with herbicides. This web page shares information on the "Goats in the Woods" (GIW) project. The project was designed to develop a knowledge base for wise browsing in woodlands by meat goats and to disseminate that information.

The project is a joint initiative through Cornell University and Penn State University. Funding has been provided through USDA NE Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (NE SARE), the USDA National Agroforestry Center, and Cornell University Agricultural Experiment Station.
