Honestly, there has never been a greater joy for me than to raise animals on a farm. We work with many new homesteaders/farmers and there is often an apprehension of raising livestock. This appears to mainly be due to the fear of knowledge necessary to do it. That response is indicative of our nation’s separation from the fundamentals of farming that was such a normal mode of operation just one to two generations ago. But, THAT IS OKAY. It is okay NOT to know. It is okay to start at zero knowledge and grow that knowledge.
I take you through the journey on why I raise livestock/babies on my farm and some of the experiences I have had that simply take my breath away. And, why it is worth considering to add animals and their offspring to your own farm.
