well, im one of those people who like to think everything through, and i have decided that i dont want much if any gas powered equipment on my farm. thought about horses for a while, but there is just something intiguing about the power of an ox. so as i understand it an ox is a steer trained as a draft animal. is this correct? if so, how exactly do you train an ox? this is all just hypothetical speaking, i havent decided for sure that oxen are the way to go, but it seems to me that they are stronger and can do more work, AND they are cheaper than horses, so is there a downside im not seeing?
