Google Clears Fields With Goats
Google is renting goats to keep fields at its Mountain View headquarters clear of weeds and brush.
“This spring we decided to take a low-carbon approach: Instead of using noisy mowers that run on gasoline and pollute the air, we’ve rented some goats from California Grazing to do the job for us,” a Google blog post reports.
The company rents about 200 goats, which the company says costs about the same as mowing.
Bayer Health recently rented 1,450 sheep to graze grass on its Richmond, California campus, according to Fast Company.
