Company rents landscape goats to weed lot

PORTLAND, OR The animals were brought in to clear weeds from a two-acre lot in southeast Portland, drawing hundreds of onlookers.

The idea came from Brett Milligan, whose Portland landscape company GreenWorks was hired to tend the lot. Milligan liked the idea of avoiding gas-powered mowers.

Georgina Stiner, president of Goat Rental NW, says using goats instead of lawnmowers is hardly new, but says there is a growing interest for it in urban areas.
