Yes, Goats. From the Friday humor department, Google has decided to replace the hired lawn mowing at it’s Mountain View Campus with goats.
It will rent a herd of 200 goats from a company called California Herding (yes a company exists for outsourcing your grazing needs). Google is spinning it as a low-carbon way to keep the grass short, which will cost about same amount as gasoline powered lawn mowers — including the requisite border collie to herd them.
Makes sense — and very Google-like. Best of all, according to Google, the goats “fertilize” at the same time. That can only mean one thing.
