And you do yours. . .. Animal husbandry in general--as opposed to plant agriculture--is a notoriously wasteful, inefficient and environmentally unfriendly means of food production. Cattle ranching on western rangeland is a particularly egregious example. The deleterious effects of highland cattle on marginal land differ in no important ways from those of other breeds.
Your operation is a small one on private land, is that correct?
