Product Description

Keeping and raising animals is no minor task. Be sure you have everything set up and straightened away before you begin, and that you have a reference to turn to once the animals are in your yard! Small-Scale Livestock Farming provides a "grass-based approach" that will help you determine what you want from your farming life, choose livestock, understand housing & feeding, learn about reproducing stock, and even create marketing strategies. "Farmer Profiles" give you real-life insights and plenty of inspiration into how farming has worked for others, while illustrations and charts provide additional help. 217 pages, indexed, softcover.
