Goats to Graze at O'Hare

Looking to hire 30 goats and one herder

The Chicago Department of Aviation is looking to hire 30 goats and one herder to help mow the grass at O’Hare International Airport. The goats will be tasked with eating grass outside the security fence in hard-to-mow areas. In addition to their mobility, the goats will produce less pollution than mechanical mowers, says the department’s point person for sustainability. San Francisco has been using goats to graze on grass for years, and Atlanta is testing a similar project.
