My sheep are here for Ewe!
Sheep are the most common solar grazing animals, as they are the best-suited species due to their non-destructive nature and low body weight. They enjoy the shade of the solar panels on hot days, napping and grazing where humans would struggle to reach. They are resourceful foragers, walking to search for vegetation that might otherwise become a shady nuisance for the solar company. They also do not cause the damage that mechanical implements would cause to the arrays. Our sheep are White Dorpers, a South African non-selective grazer bred to thrive on hard to reach forages. They can be remotely monitored and will be checked daily. That means your solar fields will have a watchful eye on them at all times!
For the safety of the existing low-mount solar arrays; goats, cows, pigs, and horses are not recommended.
