Livestock   arrow

One of the main reasons people buy acreage is to house livestock. Whether raising goats, horses, lamas or even chickens, owning livestock is a 24/7, 365-day proposition. Livestock owners must be prepared to handle sick animals, evacuate them in emergencies and learn to handle them properly. Providing water, shelter and a nutritious diet every day requires a commitment. It is also important to have identified and developed a relationship with a local veterinarian that can treat livestock prior to emergencies.
