Grazing goats with cows

Asked June 10, 2018, 6:13 PM EDT

We have small farm in east central ohio. We have 20 Angus cows and three horses. We are interested in grazing a pair of goats to help reduce weeds such as dock multiflora rose. We have about 18 acres of pasture. What type of goat would you recommend?

Muskingum County Ohio

I do not see specific reference to exact species or types of goat to select. However, goats that are considered "meat" goats or "stocker" goats would generally be the type to look for.
While doing research, I would recommend using https://search.extension.org/ and reading through fact sheets on managing multiflora rose for more information.
