I want to get a goat to keep my weeds down and plan to tether it amongst the weeds while I am at work. My smallholder group have told me that this is not a good plan but I have read a lot about cottager’s goats and it seems to me this is how they were managed.

I’m lucky as I keep my livestock with a friend on 20 acres and we are not overstocked. Every year we use ten acres to take hay. This worked quite well until the dryness of last year when my friend said we should not use the hay field for grazing at all and has now decided we should carry on with this policy.
