Marshfield Hires Goats for Poison Ivy Problem
Marshfield might be known for its Rams sports teams, but at Peter Igo Park, goats have taken the field.
The quadrupeds were on site at the park Aug. 27-Sept. 3 clearing invasive knotweed and poison ivy from the area at the corner of Marshall Avenue and Dyke Road.
“It’s the green way to go. There’s no noise, and no machinery. They’re self-contained,” said Bud Duksta, board chairman of Friends of Peter Igo Park.
