    Many people want to raise cows, sheep, goats and other livestock, but they don’t have the space or the time to maintain a large animal farm. Miniature livestock are the answer. Every bit as useful and adorable as their bigger counterparts, mini livestock are a great option for folks wishing to add a little bit of farm life to their backyard or for farmers looking to diversify their livestock portfolios.Miniature livestock are so much more than their good looks. Pint-size animals can be exhibited in 4-H events and at state and county fairs, mini sheep can be raised for wool or meat, and little cattle can be milked or raised for beef, more productive per pound than their standard counterparts. Tiny horses, donkeys, cattle, and goats can be trained to pull wagons, and miniature animals work as therapy animals in schools, nursing homes, and hospitals.While owners have different reasons for raising miniature livestock, they all share a basic need for essential, expert instruction and advice. That need is met with Storey’s Guide to Raising Miniature Livestock by Sue Weaver. This is the go-to-guide that takes the mystery out of minis. Breeding, feeding, housing, diet, nutrition, exercise, as well as disease prevention and treatment — new and experienced farmers will find everything they need to keep minis healthy and productive.A welcomed new edition to Storey's Guide to Raising Series. The essential animal husbandry information from the trusted source. With a combined total of 1.7 million copies in print.
