For years now at Saraya Europe in France, we use sheep to mow the grass at the factory!
It is the ecological technique of maintenance of green spaces using the grazing of herbivores, thus limiting the use of machines and weed killers. Eco-grazing allows for the maintenance of a variety of wild habitats and promotes biodiversity, especially amongst breeds that are seen as having little value. Lately, eco-grazing has gained in popularity for the benefits it can bring to farmers, animals, and the land. It is a great alternative solution to keep the environment safe and clean for all of us.
Eco-grazing is positive for the environment in several ways:
And the benefits don’t stop with sustainability: on average, eco-grazing costs 30% less than conventional methods!
At Saraya Europe in Velaines in the Meuse region, we have been using sheep for 5 years. The sheep are parked in an enclosure and moved according to the development of the flora in the spaces to be maintained. The area is equipped with a watering place, a salt stone and a fence. There is no need for shelter because of the hardiness of the sheep. When the vegetation is not sufficient for the sheep, they return to their sheepfold.
