UVM yesterday presented a discussion of training goats and cattle to eat weeds -- like nettle, burdock, etc.!

They started by mixing some desirable grains with the weeds and in a couple of weeks the animals were LOOKING for the weeds! They also apparently pass their desire to eat the weeds on to their progeny, too! And it does not harm the animals! A real boon to farmers!

Contact UVM for more info.
