Will llamas be as good as goats at clearing brush?

Does anything actuallyeat the blackberry stalks? The leaves possibly, but those those horrendous thorns would surely rip the mouth of anything to bits. :thinking:

Rabbits do.

I used to feed them to my meat rabbits - a little bit every day, after they ate the leaves they would also eat the stalks untill there was nothing left.
Growing loads of fruits and vegetables! Raising dairy goats, chickens, ducks, rabbits on 1/2 acre in the middle of the city of Leicester, using permaculture methods.

Well there we are then! That might seem to be an alternative answer to Orinlooper's question. Wasn't he planning to go into large scale cultivation of wild rabbits anyway? :excited: [size=78%] [/size]
