Determine if goats and/or sheep along with cattle grazing can help reduce the abundance of some introduced and native plant species (targeted plant species).

The USDA-ARS will collaborate to conduct pen and pasture trials to determine which of the targeted plant species will be consumed heavily by cattle, sheep or goats in order to use one or more of these types of livestock to control the targeted plant species.
