    yo. ohio
    My neighbor just came up to my DH and I and said hey, teach me about keeping chickens, I want to keep some!
    then asked if we wanted to go in one a few pigs and a calf, he said he had the room and wants to learn to grow his own food! I'm so excited, I hope we go threw with it!
    Now I have some reading up to do on how to house and pen a steer and 2 pigs!
    I haven't raised pigs and steers since I was a child and don't remember much!
    I'm so excited we haven't have farm animals around here much, and it is so exciting to see more people getting into it!
    I hope it won't be too hard, sure could use the meat. My SIL is gonna throw a fit, she hates the animals, but that is why I moved back here and built my house here, I just wish I had more property!
    My Dad would be so proud, I wish he was here to see this, he loved his little hobby farm, I just wish we were going to inherit his property, we just found out that my step mom might get it all and us kids won't get anything!
    I miss him and his land, I miss walking his property and remembering my childhood!
    I hate that things went bad between my Step mom and I, I can't even tell you why she is so mad at me.
    I guess death bring out the bad side of some people.
    At least I have this to look forward to!
    Thanks for listening

    Get Carla Emery's book "Encyclopedia of Country Living". It is a great resource for your new pigs and calf and tells you every thing in detail from buying to feeding and penning to breeding in plain English.
