Book Review: “It’s All About That Beef!”
by Rianna and Sheridan Chaney ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
One of my favorite ways to connect with people who want to learn about agriculture is to volunteer to read in grade school classrooms. Kids love having new people read to them and then once the book is done, they have tons of questions for me.

When getting into livestock farming there are countless things to consider before you hop into production. There are different kinds of livestock you can keep, which are chickens, rabbits, cattle, ducks, lamb, goats, swine or mounts, and are all cared for in a different way.
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 is successful.
– Your Goals
So why do you want to get into livestock farming? It’s very essential that you identify and evaluate what your goals are.
Do you want to raise livestock because you want to provide your family with healthy food? You may just want to raise livestock to manage forage? Or perhaps you want to produce your own livestock products and sell them for extra income? 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 manage 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 chickens or ducks but if you have large land you can raise, cows, lamb and other large livestock.
You should also determine the sort of procedure you desire. If you want to farm cattle determine if you need to raise cows for meat or cattle for milk or if you wish to raise laying chickens and meat hens. For milk production you can pick 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 cows that graze on pasture the cattle 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? Will you have enough finances to invest in livestock farming? Do you have the equipment and facilities? Rearing livestock requires that you have enough resources and are prepared to make investments of some money.
