I'd prefer goats to backburning to manage the undergrowth.Goats love it and a lot of farmers and even outlying councils have embraced using goats to reduce lantana and Blackberry.
You can use chemicals but natural treatment works well to and both the goats and you get a feed as a result.
Even certain breeds of chinese ducks love to eat weeds rather than crops to.
That is one sort of "Green" thing I do totally support.
don't know who owns it now but it was great when the older members of the paddys owned it.Lol McConkeys, a friend of mine went in there recently and said it was disgusting, gone downhill apparently.
even goats wont eat dead bark or leaves and branches falling from gum trees or native bracken but I like the idea of mobile goat herders doing smaller clearances and helping farmers.I'd prefer goats to backburning to manage the undergrowth.
I don't go into the bush much these days, I previously travelled with a friend who is a renowned reptile expert.If in your travels to these forests when it is safe to visit you see a new species or something that catches your eye, feel free to message me a photo of the plant and I will try my best to identify it.
A little bit of rain and those plants whose core is underground will sprout back if they havent been roasted.If in your travels to these forests when it is safe to visit you see a new species or something that catches your eye, feel free to message me a photo of the plant and I will try my best to identify it.
one good thing about fires in the Eurobodalla area is it will reduce a lot of ticks.I don't go into the bush much these days, I previously travelled with a friend who is a renowned reptile expert.
insidious little buggers. I had a a very small one bring down my 230lb mastiff. luckily the vets found the little blood sucker in time.Yeah, I have a friend whose mother died from a tick at Narooma.
Lynches was the premier pub in the old days and Highlands was for the deros, Highlands was bulldozed quite some years ago and now has great views over the inlet.insidious little buggers. I had a a very small one bring down my 230lb mastiff. luckily the vets found the little blood sucker in time.
Lynches pub was good too. You could have a beer and fend off the brush tails
That was very well written Stan, congratulations on the post.Australian weather and climate is behaving exactly as it always has.
Drought, fires, flooding rains.
Global warmists except hardened activsts have quietly dropped "global warming " and changed to "climate change" a proven event that has been occurring for 4.5Billion years.
The argument of course is how much effect humans are having on this natural occurrence and how much we can reduce any impact we might have.
Activists as usual are only attacking countries that can be brow beaten into ruining their own economies or milked for money so the UN climatologists can travel the world for chat fests leaving big carbon footprints in their wake.
If they were genuinely concerned they would run these junkets by video link.
As for global warming it hasn't had any impact on our fires but poor land care management definitely has.
Speaking of the Eurobodalla shire Green , yes I said Green inspired councils introduced E ZONES .
As a result people were NOT allowed to clear land along side natural bush or create fire breaks on their OWN properties.
People objected and Council threatened them with BIG fines if they even mowed the grass in some cases.
The result was the last big fires we had down that way the only places left standing at TATHRA were due to some people breaking the law and ignoring council by creating fire breaks in these E ZONES. (enviro zones)..
Fires have resulted in the loss of a lot of property and SOME lives so far but nothing like the big fires in Victoria that the Green Labor government didn't learn anything from where a LOT of people lost their lives.
as an aside with soaring green power prices our Governments (all of them ) should consider winter.....over in Pakistan 100 people just froze to death from global warming COLD.
help yourself.. I am no orator though and while I base it on facts its my opinion and as free speech is still mostly allowed in this country I am happy to exercise it just like anyone else should be able to.That was very well written Stan, congratulations on the post.
Would you mind if I copy and paste that on another site?
