Well they shouldn't MAKE them. But if they are able to find people WILLING to do it, I think they should be hired ahead of the goats.

Only if they have seniority on the goats.

That happened to an ex father in law. After purchasing a 25 acre overgrown hillside, he somewhere obtained a few goats for free and built a couple acre movable fence, moving them when they began eating the pine bark.

After a few years dogs got into the herd and the state paid him for the loss. So he got his hill cleared and made a profit at the same time.
