Goats at Rec Sports?


Proving once and for all that Rec Sports has the most diverse workforce on campus, we recently employed a small heard of voracious goats to clear 5 acres of bushes, grass, weeds and poison oak on the hillside behind the Golden Bear Rec Center, creating a clean fire break for the building. Not only do the goats work cheap — $1,200 for the goats vs. $2,500 for human labor — but they work green too. Instead of gas mowers, blowers, pesticides and trucks to haul off the waste, the (nearly) zero-emission goats quietly and cleanly go about their task. Learn more about the goats.
