When getting into animals farming there are countless things to consider before you leap into production. There are different types of livestock you can raise, which are hens, rabbits, cows, 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
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 else you want to produce your own livestock products and sell them for extra income? 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 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 keep, cows, lamb and other large animals.
You should also determine the sort of operation you want. If you want to farm cattle determine if you wish to raise cows for meat or cattle for milk or if you wish to raise laying chickens and meat chickens. For milk creation 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 need to raise meat cattle that graze on pasture the cows that strives well on pasture is the Belted Galloway. This goes for the other animals, certain breeds will produce better than other breeds.
