well my cousin Dave lives next door and he has a heifer. We live in a small country town but our houses are about 300 ft away and he owns a little less than an acre of land.
He's going to breed her and after she calves he'll slaughter and then raise the baby for slaughter too.
I'll probably get a couple of steaks. He has chickens and turkeys bunny's and pigeons too.And next year we are doing meat chickens together.
I raised my cow in my backyard when I lived in town, but I didn't live there long, by the time she was weaned we'd moved, but she was still in my yard. She's now living w/ my mom's cow herd, but it took alot of effort to get her to except/bond w/ the other cows. She prefered the dogs (or humans) w/ the horses being a close second.
