Building Strong Foundations, Part 3. Choosing Livestock for Your Farm

In the final session of the three-part Building Strong Foundations series for beginning livestock farmers, NCAT Specialists draw on their own experience to offer tips for success in starting a livestock operation with worms, poultry, rabbits, hogs, sheep, and goats, or cattle. Learn about respecting the limits of your land and choosing a livestock species based on resource base, marketing, and goals. To give an idea of the options available, NCAT specialists provide virtual tours of their own farms.
