For the urban farmer: Miniature Livestock.

Moo.

Moo.

Today we hear news of miniature cattle, designed for the farmer on a budget – a demographic which will continue to grow during the current administration. (The subject of a future rant.) In any case, these mini bovine take up less space, cost less to feed, and produce less methane than your typical Jersey or Holstein – ideal for the backyard or “weekend farmer”.

And lest you turn anti-GMO, or hippie dippy naturalist on me, take a second look. These cows are actually original european domestic stock. That’s right, if you currently waste your money on organic beef or milk it’s too late, your eating and drinking cattle that’s already genetically modified. Sorry, chuck.
