"Aleutian geese spend about 90 percent of their day eating."
Since there are so many of them now, we know what they do the other 10% of their time.
I wonder if you could get dogs to herd them so that they would graze lightly while fertilizing the forage?

Hey, there is a claim that lead birdshot gets ingested in these birds and ends up killing them. I suggest lacing the field with lead shot even though I believe it is a falsehood.

Better than the Muscovy Ducks that would crap all over my neighborhood when I lived in Miami.
Dennis, didn't you say once that Muscovy Ducks were good eating>

In some pastures the birds chomped 10-inch-high grasses down to a mere two inches - then tackled the tender new shoots.
I need a couple of these birds in my yard after all the excess rain we got this year.

Thanks Norm. The flats around Humboldt Bay are ideal for milk cows and cattle because the pastures grow through the summer due to the sub-irrigation from the rivers. These geese have outgrown their habitat. Here is the Times-Standard full article..
