Why We Need Livestock

When living in the country, we have land to care for. The land we own is a resource we must make profitable use of, not waste.

To keep our land under control, we do not need to garden or grow crops. We must keep our pastures cut and free from weeds because an overgrown property has a negative effect on our neighbors, which we cannot allow.

We can maintain our pastures with machinery–brush tractors and mowers and brush hogs–or we can keep pasture animals–goats, sheep, cattle. Thus, we must choose between animals and machines, not animals and nothing. Nothing is not an option.

I am not a mechanic and have no interest in maintaining machinery. I don’t think most people move to the country to do so.

It is, therefore, necessary to keep livestock to maintain our property.
