    This episode is a question and answer session with Wayne Herring, of Herring’s Green Grass Farm. He addresses several listener questions about small scale farming, including running pigs and goats in a woodlot, the damage that can be caused by predators and how to protect poultry flocks, and multi-use mobile shelters. Definitely worth a listen if you’re considering adding livestock to a homestead.

    In addition to sharing his thoughts on these questions, Wayne also recommended the following books for listeners who are interested in pursuing small scale livestock. All are by Joel Salatin.
