++ Goats in Trees ++
Question #1: Yes, there is a place where you can find goats in foraging in argan trees (see top photo). Where is this place?
A. Alabama, or
B. Morocco, or
In the arid parts of Morocco where argan trees grow, goats are encouraged to climb, dine and deliver the seeds to earth, where they are collected by humans and eventually turned into argan oil.
[SOURCE (answers): Do Tree-Climbing Goats Help Plant New Trees? ]
A. About 33%, or
B. About 50%, or
C. About 74%.
Question #3: Herders assist kid goats in learning to climb (argan) trees and even occasionally prune the trees to facilitate climbing. True or False?
A. True, or
In temperate countries where green pastures abound, goats do not need to climb trees to forage, but in arid regions the only available forage is sometimes found on the tops of evergreen shrubs and trees.
Herders assist kid goats in learning to climb and even occasionally prune the trees to facilitate climbing.
During the autumn, when herbaceous vegetation is lacking, goats devote 74% of their foraging time to “treetop grazing” (El Aich et al. 2007)
We previously observed Spanish and Mexican goats grazing on short trees or shrubs, but in Morocco we were astonished to see between 10 and 20 goats regularly climbing thorny 8–10-m-tall argan trees, mostly defoliated after intensive grazing.

++ STUDY OF THE DAY ++ -- How do goats help propogate argan trees (Argania spinosa)?
"A new study probes the question of excretion vs. expectorate. The answer has important consequences for the birth of baby trees — in particular, the gnarled argan tree."
