How many animals should I have?

This video — the second session of ATTRA’s three-part “Building Strong Foundations” series for beginning livestock farmers — covers soil structure and its effect on water infiltration​, as well as ways to determine the carrying capacity​ of your land. Find out how adaptive management​ helps you “keep your eyes on the prize” through observing, implementing, and adapting. Having the right number of livestock for your farm will help you take better care of your land and make money with fewer costs.
