We’ve all experienced driving past farms, wondering what grazing cows are actually doing. Are many of them simply being fattened up for our meals later or are they actually helping out in some other way?

In a much deeper sense, Kathy Voth started considering that more than a decade ago. What if cows were used to clean up weeds and other invasive vegetation on farmland in Arizona and other states?

Voth’s idea has gained traction, but not very many adoptees yet.

She joined The Show to talk about it.
