The Top Three Threats to Your Animals
Disease – possible remedies = fish antibiotics, getting friendly with your doctor so you could start storing extra doses of common medications, using traditional herbal remedies. All three of these solutions will require research into the proper dosage amount and suggested treatment.
Free Range Livestock Considerations:
Free range chickens will lay less eggs and you will have to find them.
Cows won’t produce milk if they are not being well fed.
Your cow should be a milk and meat cow.
Feed Solutions for Long-Term Survival:
Keeping your animals well fed will be the biggest challenge.
Scraps from the kitchen can bolster the feed supply.
Hogs can eat scraps from animal butchery & they will eat each other including the babies (keep babies separate from other hogs)
Pasture rotation will be of the utmost importance. Different animals will eat different things.
Raise your own grain crops – corn, wheat, oats, barley, etc. Start planting your pastures with non GMO seeds now and they will reseed themselves making your pastures rich with grains for your livestock to eat.
Featured Quote From Today's Chapter:
“The woman that stood before him, although short in stature, had a very strong heart and an unrelenting mind that once set to a goal would not stray.”
