I'm a new homesteader and have never dealt with animals besides our pet dogs. I'm bringing in some Nigerian Dwarfs here in the next couple of weeks. I have some great forested forage for them but we found that there is a large patch of poison hemlock here and there. I'm doing my best to pull up the majority of the plants that I am finding, especially the larger ones. I have been just pulling them up and laying them down on the ground to decompose in place.
So I have 2 questions about this.
1. Is it ok to leave the hemlock on the ground to decompose or do I need to try and remove it altogether? I have read that goats are not into eating anything off the ground, so I wasn't sure.
2. There's so much of this hemlock around so I'm obviously going to miss some here or there. Will the goats avoid eating it or do I need to get more meticulous?
