Sequatchie Sheep

There's more than one way to combat the curse of kudzu. Turn about is fair play on the vine that ate the south.

 

The Far East has brought many things from their culture… into ours.

Sheep were first domesticated in Central Asia… and  provide us with meat, milk, cheese and wool.

Kudzu was marketed in the United States as an ornamental plant that can prevent soil erosion.

And who knew that conservationists would one day use sheep to bring kudzu under control.
