Goosegrass and goats
I read an article in an old copy of The Smallholder Magazine that goats like goosegrass (cleavers). We have lots growing in local hedgerows so I collected a bagful and gave them to Pinkie and Georgina yesterday (before Georgina went into labour). The article was correct. They loved them. As did the hens. They will be appearing regularly in their diet from now on.
