We have 5 acres and raise dairy goats for our own milk and cheese etc.. sell the bucks... chickens and have the horses and peacocks for enjoyment. Was thinking of a way to make a few bucks extra. Would it be more profitable to get a couple of jersey heifers and raise them for a year and resell them and hopefully make a profit. Would it cost too much in feed etc since I don't have a lot of pasture. My goats graze about 1/2 acre but still feed hay year round too. I have bought horses in the past and put time into them for a year or so but I get too attached to them and it just about broke my heart last time I sold a horse hearing it calling all the way down the road in the trailer that day it left. (sniff sniff).. I'm hoping a couple of cows won't find their way into my heart as easily...but I don't know about that either. Raising calves for meat I think would be harder to sell the meat and don't know if I want to deal with people selling actual meat for the table.... SO....would it be worth my time and $$ ...Was thinking about pigs...but thought the cows would sell for me better. Any advice ??
