Students at Sts. Peter and Paul School in Grangeville received an education in the capabilities of stock dogs at an afternoon demonstration last Friday, May 10.
Ray Holes of Lazy H Livestock and Prescriptive Livestock Services of White Bird, conducted two half-hour sessions, explaining the why and how using goats in prescriptive grazing to address noxious weeds, and as well on the use of dogs in managing goat herds.
Ten goats were used in the presentation, part of a band of 1,000-plus grazing on their White Bird ranch. The goats will soon be headed to Montana for multiple-year contracts to graze noxious weeds.
Holes’ children: Ray Jr., 13; Cressis, 11; and Vade, 10, assisted in the presentation
