This Vegetable Can Be Used as Livestock Feed

  • Life on a homestead can be rewarding, yet challenging. You find yourself having to search for alternative and low-cost ways to live self-sufficiently. However, once you're able to find a solution, you feel a sense of well-deserved accomplishment. You don't have to rely upon another source for your day to day needs.

    A part of your independence comes from owning livestock. They require plenty of attention and care just as your crops do. Feeding them can get expensive so why not look for a way to make their food using your own land? You're likely growing food for yourself so with a little extra effort, you can feed your livestock as well and add to your sustainability. It's cost-effective and much more convenient than having to purchase the food from a retailer.
