Yet if you know what you’re doing, your livestock can survive and even thrive during winter weather.
This week’s guests on Off The Grid Radio — Shawn and Beth Dougherty — take care of cattle, pigs, sheep, chickens and ducks throughout the year on a large farm in Ohio. They tell us the tricks they use to care for their animals when cold weather hits.
Shawn and Beth – the authors of the book, “The Independent Farmstead” (Storey) – also tell us:
- What they feed their animals during winter.
- How they keep the livestock’s water from freezing.
- What they do to protect their animals when temperatures approach 0 degrees Fahrenheit.
Shawn and Beth also tell about the vegetables they grow in the garden during winter – and how they do it.
If you own livestock or poultry, then this week’s show is for you!
