have been divided into two bands
and under the care of the herders a.re
grazed within certain well defined
areas so that their work may be con
eentrated on the brush within those
limits. The result is that they have
practically killed nearly all -the brush
in the eourse either by eating it up en
irely, or by barking, as in the case
of the heavy manzanita bushes. At
thebeginning of the experiment there
was some doubt as to the goats' wil
lingess to eat the manzanita, but it
has been found that where there is
little else they will just as readily at
tack it as any other bushes.
The grazing season was so late
this year on the Lassen Forest that
the goats did not begin operations
untl about the middle of June, but
since then they have made rapid prog
