West Sacramento hires goat herd to clear shrubs throughout city (The California Aggie)
West Sacramento has hundreds of acres of open space along the banks of the Sacramento River and locations along trails and fields. Traditional mowers are not able to get to all the overgrown spots due to uneven terrain, rocks and trees. The City of West Sacramento employs environmentally friendly goats from Blue Tent Farms in Red Bluff to assist in the vegetation management.
