Is this the G.O.A.T. method of natural Fire Hazard Reduction you have ever seen?
GOATS. Yes, you read that correctly. Goats. Lots of them. All happily munching away and clearing your property of overgrown vegetation at the same time.
Central Coast Goats Fire Hazard Reduction is the brainchild of Denny Woods and was created after he witnessed some devastating fires in his area several years ago.
He was certain that his property would be protected, as his cattle and especially his goats, maintained his paddocks by constantly grazing on undergrowth.
Other neighbours were not so fortunate, so in a “light bulb” moment he decided to start hiring out his goats to locals to ensure their properties were more fire safe for future incidents.
Denny’s goats travel all over NSW, and are particularly useful for landholders with steep or rocky terrain, as they are natural climbers and vociferous eaters.
“The price varies between jobs,” Denny explains, “contributing factors to costs include distance travelled, amount of goats hired, and length of time required”.
