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 chickens, rabbits, cattle, ducks, lamb, goats, swine or horses, and are all cared for in a different way.
To be successful in livestock 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.
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 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 income? Either way establishing goals is no doubt important before you pursue your project.
After you have made your decision on what type of animals 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 farming 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, cattle, lamb and other large livestock.
Also determine the sort of operation you want. If you want to farm cows determine if you wish 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 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 different types of livestock. For example if you wish to keep meat 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.
– Your Resources
Ask yourself if you have enough resources to start out 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 commit some money.
