Finishing up my fencing now and monitoring my pasture fill in. I've heard American blackbellies will eat browse like goats, but considering the amount of what I suspect is browse I may have to get goats for the first year or two. Can anyone weigh in on if this is OK blackbelly pasture?
The first picture is what currently predominates the property
The second and third is a larger grass I suspect is good for eating
The others are just more pictures for clarity
I couldn't identify most of what was in your pictures (sorry) but I have found that my blackbellies have a little more grass preference than my goats but also like some of the weeds that my goats won't touch and like the maple, redwood and sycamore leaves about the same as my goats.

I used a plant identification app, and it looks like the 2 prevailing weeds growing out there is Horseweed, and Hemp. Does the 5th pictures look like hemp to you guys? I honestly don't know if it grows in lumps like that.
From what I've googled it looks like this should be ok for sheep, does anyone have experience with their sheep eating either one of these?
Try 100 things. 2 will work out, but you will never know in advance which 2. This tiny ad might be one:
