Did You Know This About Geese?

I didn’t know until I read this.  Great site on poultry.

“Using Geese To Control Weeds — Geese will not compact the soil as heavy machinery or people will. They will work seven days a week, rain or shine. They can be put into wet fields to work when machinery would bog down and cause severe damage to soil structure. Their agile necks allow them to pull weeds close to and from within the crop plants, where machine or hoe cannot. At the end of the season the grower can also process the geese for meat and feathers. All of this is accomplished while the geese are naturally spreading nitrogen-rich manure all over the field. — 3,000-word article, Metzer Farms, California.
