Mary Powell chats about her goats during a visit to Fred and Lisa Scheller's rural Tonganoxie residence. Her goats, known as the Barnyard Weed Warriors, mowed down the grove full of weeds. The goats also visited Cheryl Hanback and Richard Brown's rural Tonganoxie residence to eat the various weeds in their pasture. The animals eat various types of noxious weeds and other vegetation, including poison ivy.

Goat clusters: Barnyard Weed Warriors snarf down plants for weed control in rural Tonganoxie

Bells clanging met the faint sound of rain trying to fall through a grove of trees Friday night near Fred and Lisa Scheller’s rural Tonganoxie home. The bells belonged to some of the 75 Barnyard Weed Warriors from Mary Powell’s fleet of hungry and adventurous goats. The rain, well, it didn’t seem to bother the hungry animals.
