the billies and nannies are living up
to their reputation as land clear
era. It la interesting to watch them
go after the brush, stripping It of
leaves and twigs: They are great
climbers and several of them will
shin up quite ai good sized sapling to
bend it over. ' Aa brush eaters they
are a success.
Angora goats are used very exten
sively Jn the Willamette Valley for
this purpose, as well aa In many
other parts of the United States. In
fact they have become bo well known
as brush eaters that the United
Statea Department of Agriculture
has Issued a small book on the sub
, Ject for the guidance of those farm
ers owning brush covered) land. An
extract from this, government report
"Land can be cleared of the worst
brush known to this country for a
little less than, nothing by Angora
goats. The way in which goata kill
brush is by continually croppLng .the
leaves and twigs, which serve aa the
lungs of the brush. The continued
' cropping of the leaves makes the
brush, aa it were, sick, caused by the
lack of nourishment. This sickness
sinks to the very extremity of the
roots, thus preventing sprouting. Any
and all kinds of brush are in this
-way easily killed. . Many varieties
are entirely killed by onei summer's
trimming of the leaves. Almost any
are killer by two years trimming. To
clear the worst brush do not cut any
thing that the goats can reach or
bend. The tallest or largest are bet
ter not cut. All trees and saplings
should be cut, and the goata will
keep the sprouts, down."
The government report goes very
fully into the other values -of the
Angora goat for mohair and meat.
Mohair la. now quoted at 30 cents
per pound la. the Willamette valley,
and many people assert that goat
meat Is better than mutton the
browsing habits giving it more the
taste of venison,
