Barnyard In Your Backyard

A Beginner’s Guide to Raising Chickens, Ducks, Geese, Rabbits, Goats, Sheep, and Cattle

By Gail Damerow

Barnyard In Your Backyard by Gail Damerow

Barnyard In Your Backyard is the essential primer for first-time farmers. Each chapter spotlights a single animal and provides simple, clear instructions on what it takes to keep your livestock healthy and happy. You’ll learn what type of housing and how much land your animals need, what to feed them, how to breed them and how to handle routine health care. There’s even a calendar with reminders for daily, weekly and monthly routine care.

Covering everything from which breeds of ducks are best for eggs and which are best for meat to how to buy a beef or dairy calf to where to find a market for manure, this easy-to-use handbook teaches you how to operate a mini-farm for fun, profit or both.
