Will Goats eat Russian/Autumn Olive? What ever you call it in your neck of the woods, the several different species are (I think) very similar. This stuff is rampant on my land, I hate it! Was just out walking the fenceline breaking it off by hand(which I know will just make it branch prolifically) and thought wouldn't it be a miracle . . . if something could eat this stuff!?!? If they could, it's kind of thorny, it might step up my timeline of getting goats.
