When most people think of raising homestead livestock, they invariably think that they must have chickens and a cow. But truth be told, when it comes to raising livestock, there are a lot of reasons to avoid raising chickens altogether, and almost every reason not to own a cow.

Overview

When most people think of raising homestead livestock, they invariably think that they must have chickens and a cow. But truth be told, when it comes to raising livestock, there are a lot of reasons to avoid raising chickens altogether, and almost every reason not to own a cow.

Just like in my previous two books in this series (the Secret Garden of Survival and the Secret Greenhouse of Survival), this new book, the Secret Livestock of Survival, will show you how to grow your own sources of food (in this case- protein), with a much better return on your investment of time, money, feed, housing and real estate, than with traditional homestead thinking. And these livestock animals are discrete, so most people won't even know you are raising them.

If you are serious about raising livestock, whether you are an existing homesteader, or just getting started, this book will save you many hundreds of times what it costs you to buy. (And the information contained in this book, can easily replace the need for you to buy about 10 other livestock books.)

Now you can really live off the grid. Not just the electrical grid, but off the industrial food grid. And the less you are reliant on the industrial food chain, the wealthier and more secure you will be.

Editorial Reviews

Jen Elswick
Rick Austin has done it again with "Secret Livestock of Survival"! "Secret Livestock of Survival" is both comprehensive and easy to understand, so that even a beginner like me can succeed in providing protein for my family and be truly self-sufficient! Growing fruits and vegetables is awesome, but we have still had to rely on other sources for meat, milk, ice cream, cheese, etc.
Survivor Jane
In this newest installment of the "Secret of Survival" series, the author not only explains to you what the best choices are in animals and fowl for a long-term sustainable homestead; and their ratio to feed vs output, he also shares inexpensive ways to maintain these animals in the least amount of space, shows you how to create the most effective yet inexpensive shelters to house them in, and the best "tried and true" equipment to use to water, feed and maintain them.
Tara Dodrill
This isn't only Rick Austin's best book yet, it is the best information on raising livestock for survival I have ever read. The easy to understand tips are great not only for beginners. The in-depth details about the various types of survival livestock Austin and his wife raise on their homestead, offers new insight for even seasoned preppers. Perhaps best yet, you can embark on the survival farm plan outlined in the book without spending a ton of money or a lot of acreage.
Duke Causey
By careful research and countless hours of hands-on trial and error, Rick has figured out the right way to farm, and he explains his methods in a way that will save attentive homesteaders thousands of hours of their own trial and error. Farming and animal husbandry are not intuitive endeavors - - you have to actually know what you are doing. Rick's book, and its two predecessors, get you well beyond simply a starting point.
