Targeted to urban and suburban reader who may be new to animal raising, "The Backyard Homestead Guide to Raising Farm Animals" is a compendium of information on chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys, rabbits, goats, sheep, cattle, pigs and honey bees - all of which are suitable for small-scale backyard food production. Readers will learn exactly how to raise these animals successfully, from selecting the rights breeds for the space and resources available to producing delicious cheese, honey, milk, eggs and meat. Comprehensive and details, yet readable and fun, the book includes hundreds of helpful line drawings. It also offers an appealing fold out colour section illustrating the breeds most suitable for backyard life, along with breed profiles for each animal.
