The purchase of animals is one of the actions carried out by the project to help local livestock holdings by lightening their needs of investment. At the same time, the measure is useful to accelerate the introduction of grazing activity in strategic areas for fire prevention.
At the beginning of March, the project completed these livestock purchase last operation with the arrival of 70 goats to a holding located in Vacarisses. This new goat herd will be responsible for grazing the strategic area around Puigventós, where most of LIFE Montserrat’s prescribed burning activity has been developed.
Overall, the project has been involved in the purchase of 485 goats and 32 cows that have been distributed among 7 livestock holdings within the project area.
