Goats For Weed Management Showcase

The showcase demonstrates the effective-ness of goats as a weed control method—particularly for Japanese Sunflower and other weeds in inaccessible areas.

The Japanese Sunflower is a serious environmen-tal weed in Coastal Queensland and Northern New South Wales, usually found on roadsides, embankments and unmanaged land. It forms dense thickets which smother natural vegetation and prevents natural regeneration.

• Learn about the goat weed control methodology
• Identify the effectiveness of small ruminants as weed control in inaccessible locations
• Network with other natural resource practitioners

Wear long sleeves and trousers, enclosed footwear and a hat. Lunch and refreshments provided
