    it's a great idea, but they require a fence, shelter and water too, so animal require someone who cares about them.

      Some might think otherwise but I think as a landowner, that additional maintenance might be worth the cost but still save more money in the long end. It all depends on how much livestock you have though. What other kinds of properties do you think could use a method like this? Strangely, cemeteries (large, quiet, and typically fences or walled-in) is a great testing hub.

        is an excellent idea. I think it can be the ideal for mowing lawns in the hills, steep slopes and stony ground. Also for the recovery of green areas infested with brambles and other plants difficult to eradicate. I meant that you have to consider some extra effort, it is not sufficient to put the petrol into the mower!

        Schools, universities and churches have big lawns here in DC, they could definitely use some sheep or goats to do the lawn. It would also have a great impact on raising awarness on sustainable issues. And the manure could be use for the composts of community gardens which seriously lack this type of material.

        I wanted to find a similar company to rent ducks to get rid of some bugs in my community garden (and to get manure), but I haven't found one in DC itself... There is definitely a great opportunity for companies in this field!
