When getting into animals farming there are a great number of things to consider before you bounce into production. There are different types of livestock you can raise, which are hens, rabbits, cattle, ducks, lamb, goats, swine or mounts, and are all cared for in different ways.
To be successful in livestock farming you need to know your options, goals and resources. Being aware of what you want to accomplish will help you in shaping up your farm so that it can be successful.
– Your Goals
And so why do you want to get into animal farming? It’s very essential that you identify and evaluate what your goals are.
Do you want to raise livestock because you want to supply your family with healthy food? You may just want to raise livestock to manage forage? Or else you want to produce your own livestock products and sell them for extra cash? Either way placing goals is incredibly important before you pursue your project.
After you have made your decision on what type of livestock you want to raise, consider the land in which you are going to farm the livestock. Consider the size of your land, the laws regarding raising livestock and property zoning. If your land is small you may consider raising birds but if you have large land you can keep, cattle, lamb and other large animals.
Also determine the sort of operation you desire. If you want to farm cows determine if you wish to raise cattle for meat or cows for milk or if you wish to raise laying chickens and meat chickens. For milk creation you can choose between goat milk, sheep milk or cow milk. You can just raise all of them.
The type of breed is also important so make certain you get knowledge of the several types of livestock. For example if you wish to raise meat cattle that graze on pasture the cows that strives well on pasture is the Belted Galloway. This goes for the other livestock, certain breeds will produce better than other breeds.
– Your Resources
Ask yourself if you have enough resources to get started on your project? Are your finances okay to invest in livestock farming? Do you have the equipment and facilities? Rearing livestock requires that you have enough resources and are prepared to spend some money.
