Noticed a thread yesterday on the cattle forum about Yaks, so I did a short google search to learn a little bit about them. Seems like an interesting alternative livestock for the smallholding dweller or homesteader. Apparently have healthy lean meat, milk ideal for butter and cheese, and are supposed to be very tame and docile animals. Also, you can use their fiber. They are efficient for feed conversion and can live on marginal pastures. The drawback might be the limitations to keeping them better in a colder or high altitude climate. That should be of some news for the northland folks.! Does anyone on here have experience with yak raising?
