Running debate in our home. We were talking livestock and in the future will be purchasing some. The kids think that a horse or two would be the most versatile whereas I think having a few cows would be better, if I have to have a large animal. Kids say you can ride a horse, pull things with one and in worse case eat it. I say a horse is too high maintenance and that cows would be easier. Meat, milk and they seem to have trade value- milk, meat or the whole thing. I am not 100% sure but I think cows are easier to fence in though my neighbors cows seem to get out quite a bit. Personally, I I think a herd of goats would be the best because they a brush hogs, you can milk them, eat them and they can pull a little cart, though you cannot ride in it. Plus they would not need a large barn. What would be your choice of livestock to raise and why?
