my husband and i have moved onto an old family farm that has about a five acre pasture. there have been no animals in the pasture for quite some time, and parts of it are now overrun by trees and briars. we are hoping over the next few years to clear the land and restore it to it's original pasture status, and are trying to figure out what type of animals might be best to put in the pasture after it is cleared. we are relatively new to raising livestock, and are trying to learn as much as we can right now. ideally, we would like animals that are: - relatively easy for less-experienced people to keep - good around kids - possibly something that could generate at least a small income we plan to start out with a small number of whatever animal we decide on, and as we learn more and become more experienced decide whether or not to increase their numbers. any suggestions/ideas? thanks so much!
