When getting into livestock farming there are countless things to consider before you bounce into production. There are various kinds of livestock you can keep, which are hens, rabbits, cows, ducks, lamb, goats, swine or horses, and are all cared for in different ways.
To be successful in animal farming you need to know your options, goals and resources. Learning what you want to accomplish will help you in shaping up your farm so that it can be successful.
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 provide your family with healthy food? You may just want to raise animals to manage forage? Or else you want to produce your own livestock products and sell them for extra money? Either way establishing goals is no doubt important before you pursue your dream.
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 farming livestock and property zoning. If your land is not that large you may consider raising chickens or ducks but if you have large land you can keep, cows, lamb and other large livestock.
Also determine the sort of procedure you desire. If you want to raise cattle determine if you need to raise cattle for meat or cattle for milk or if you need 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 different types of livestock. For example if you wish to keep beef production cows that graze on pasture the cattle that strives well on pasture is the Belted Galloway. This goes for the other animals, certain breeds will produce better than other breeds.
