We will keep a few cattle for our own consumption and milk production. We should aim for a mixed breed so that we have both good milk and good meat production. The bulk of the feed can come from the intensive barley operation explained below.
Homemade supplement for cows – mixed daily with cut forage for milk cows – this is good for the cows, the people drinking the milk, and for downstream irrigation once it has passed the cows stomach. Downstream you plant your forage which you then feed to your cows again and you have a cycle, human compost goes back to field again as well. Get the Pat Colby book on natural animal nutrition.
