Brussels Airport Hires Sheep to “Mow the Lawn”

Until the end of June, the lawn at the noise barrier at Brussels Airport will “trim” sheep instead of lawnmowers. Brussels airport has enlisted the help of hundred sheep to keep the grass down at the rear of the airport. 

By the end of June, they will have a “trial period”, then the sheep will go to farms to handle the heat, and in the fall they will return to work at the airport.

According to the airport management, sheep, unlike lawn mowers, not only work without harmful emissions but also maintain biodiversity.

Shepherds watch the sheep react to aircraft noise, so far the sheep did not show any signs of anxiety.
