I’ve gotten some requests and questions about doing a show on best breeds for livestock types. I think I could probably do a show on each type that I have experience with but first I wanted to preface that with a show that’s a cautionary tale on how picking the wrong breed can have bad effects. So rather than say this breed is best for this or that I tried to tell you what you can expect from general characteristics and why breed is so important.
*The differences in chicken shape and temperament. My theory at least.
*Why dual purpose breeds seem to be good ideas for sheep/goats but not cattle.
*Pigs are pretty basic breed wise.
*My preliminary plans with goats/sheep on my small holding.
