I want to raise my own meat. What animals do you have that the meat provided is worth more than the money you've spent to feed them? And what can you grow in order to lessen the feed costs for the animals that you raise? Do you raise a couple pigs and then sell one, or just raise for yourself? I need to raise something that I can have someone else slaughter... (I'm just not ready for that yet) What do you ask when you pick a butcher shop? What should i look for? Do you barter, or pay by the pound?
