Hundreds Of Ducks Are Employees at a Vineyard

At 9:45 every morning at the Vergenoegd Wine Estate in Stellenbosch, South Africa, a giant herd of ducks is released. About 700-800 Indian Runner ducks are employed at the vineyard, and their job is simple: keep the grapevines free of pests. These ducks are released in mass, running across the vineyard's grounds in formation to eat up slugs and snails all day. Luckily for visitors to the vineyard, they can watch the delightful parade of ducks twice a day.
