Livestock Management

Raising animals can provide environmental benefits and economic vitality to a piece of property. Goats, for example, can assist with brush management, produce marketable milk and cheese, and provide manure that can be used as a soil amendment. Depending on the species you raise, your livestock will need different amounts of water and other elements to be healthy and keep the land healthy. 

Read the Livestock section of the Rural Living Guide to learn more about fencing, pasture and grazing management, mud and manure management.
