Here is a recent interview I did with Chris Blanchard of the most excellent Farmer to Farmer podcast on the issue of making a living raising livestock. We touch on issues such as appropriate scale, finding efficiencies, direct markets, pricing, costs of production, and more. I think it will be an hour well spent if you listen! Many of these topics are further flushed out in our book, The New Livestock Farmer. If you want to learn more, consider purchasing the book!
