Well it may be worth 1500$ then.

How about water?

Not sure about water. I've driven past and seen them out there.

Sounds like a good gig, I know there doing it here for Kudzu, somehow the goats are able to eat the roots and all and the stuff doesn't come back.

Its is a great idea, that's becoming widely acceptable. 1500$ to rent 24 goats sound nice.

I wonder what you have too do too keep the goats from wondering off?
They put an electic fence around the area they want the goats to eat. The area I saw was about two acres, and had a stream running through, so they had plenty of water. I assume they hook up some batteries to operate the fence

It's been in the news up here lately. The city of Boston hired a farm from the area to bring in some goats to clear overgrown parks. They're usinging tempery electric fences.
