    Regarding one of the listener questions about the poison ivy removal in their horse pasture, you mentioned that cows and goats both love to eat poison ivy. Back when we lived in Rhode Island, we knew a guy who had a goat rental business for that very purpose. He would rent out his herd (keeping them in desired areas with solar fencing) to homeowners, schools, landowners, and the like for a few days to a week for a flat daily fee. The goats ate through the given area (they fenced off rhododendrons and other plants poisonous to goats) and then took them away once the area had been defoliated. During the winter time, he used the same goats for petting zoos and birthday parties. If they don’t want to invest in goats yet, perhaps goat rentals can be hired in their area too? Just a thought.
