    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.

    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.
