Working Sheep

Sharing information laden with a touch of humor today. 

Lancaster Farming had this post on Facebook.

Solar power installations make row crop production challenging, if not mostly impossible. But a lot of grass — pasture — can grow under those panels. A Penn State webinar that aired during the
Pennsylvania Farm Show
explored the ways solar and ag can coexist. One way is to let livestock graze the land between panels. But not goats, because they climb all over everything, and not cattle because they knock stuff over. But sheep — they pretty much just want to eat.
A report on the webinar Solar Energy and Agriculture: New Opportunities will appear in our Jan. 16 edition.
