With an approach built around investing for the long term, Homestead Cows prepares homesteaders and small farmers to open the farm gate to cattle, whether a single milk cow or a small beef herd.

Homestead Cows covers the A to Z of husbandry:

  • Cow history, biology, diet, and nutrition
  • Understanding what you want, what's involved, and creating a plan
  • Selecting breeds and determining herd size
  • Housing and facilities, transportation, and equipment
  • Financial management and the dollars and cents of cows
  • Breeding and reproduction
  • Cow health and happiness, including safety, handling, and good husbandry
  • Processing, products, and cooking

Cattle are the most productive, versatile, and low-input food sources and revenue on the farm and can help regenerate and build soil. The secret to success is excellent management. Homestead Cows distills decades of hard-won, practical knowledge into an essential guide to successful small-scale cattle farming for every homesteader and farmer.
