Livestock farming can be done in different ways with some ways having more benefits the others. One type of farming that is growing among farmers is sustainable livestock farming. This type of farming requires the use of a pasture based system.
Livestock guarding dogs and livestock herding dogs both fall under the umbrella category of sheepdogs, but it is important to understand that these are two very different dog breeds. Livestock Guardian Dogs (LGDs) were developed and bred to protect livestock from predators such as: wolves, jackals, coyotes, baboons, leopards, bears etc. Herding dogs on the other hand were developed and bred to…well, herd!
When getting into livestock farming there are a lot of things to consider before you jump into production. The various types of livestock you can raise are chickens, rabbits, cattle, ducks, sheep, goats, pigs, or horses and are all cared for in a different way.
