Conrad Lindbloom and his goats from Beaverlodge, Alberta, will work with a team of working dogs and herdspersons and spend approximately 10 days to get rid of two large infestations of Dalmatian toadflax.
Elaine Armagost, Invasive Plant Program Manager, says the weed has a beautiful yellow flower, but it can produce up to 500,000 seeds each year, which can lay dormant in the soil for up to a decade. Hand pulling or herbicides are not an option due to the size of the infestation and the steep slopes of the banks.
Dalmation toadflax was first seen in the area back in 1991.
