If you’re considering cattle as an addition to your homestead, you’re probably well on your way to total self-sufficiency — if you’re not there already. Chickens, ducks, goats, and sheep are all good starting animals. Just like with each species, cows have their own unique needs. Being able to make sure you can care for them and legally have them are the first, and most important, steps.
About the Author
My husband and I were raised in rural Southeast Alaska. We dream of buying property on a remote island to homestead and live a more self sustainable life. At the same time, we work to be prepared for the unknown things life can throw at you when you least expect it. Every day is spent working to fulfill our dream and until then, we learn all we can to increase our skills so we will thrive when the land comes!
