The Best Farm Animals for Food in Hard Times
For most people when it comes to providing all of the necessary nutrients for good health in hard times, animals will play an important role. With the proper use of animals you can develop a renewable and self-sustaining supply of high quality proteins, fats, oils and omega3 fatty acids. This is not a one-way exchange because we can provide care and protection for the animals while they provide benefits to their care-giver. In fact, the right animals provide more benefit to us than just food. When it come to food from animals, we’re not just talking about eating them, although at the right time and in the right way that is a probable option.
What are the realistic choices? What are the advantages and disadvantages of each? In the movies and written accounts there is almost always a milk cow on the scene. Just how realistic and important is the cow for the newcomer wana-be homesteader?
Keith Chandler has been developing the capacity for self-reliant living and the skills to go along with it for more than 20 years. At one point, for several years, he and his family lived in Gold Hill, a very remote location on the west desert of Utah. It was 30 mile of dirt roads to the nearest services.
In the community he now lives in he has his own milk cow, chickens, rabbits and garden.
Keith has done many things on his own but has also learned the importance of developing functional relationships. He plays an important ongoing part in developing a three-tiered community program aimed at helping his family and other around him make it when things go bad.Safe Harbor Alliance
