Hi All Can anyone out there give me some advice on Livestock??? I have made the "Tree Change"and have purchased a small peice(2 1/2 acres) of land near Crows Nest, Qld. It is at least 30% covered with young to middle age Ironbarks and a scatterring of Gums. My long Term Goal is to be as close to self sufficient as possible while following as closely to the Principles of Permaculture as well. I have done some reading and am planning to do some courses this year, but would love some feedback. Ok finally to the question; How many pigs could I reasonably be able to keep in a area of 1/2 acre ? I will be setting it out in a rotational grazing pattern. Apart from Chickens for eggs and meat and the obvious other benefits what other animals should I be looking into? Any advice would be most welcome. p.s. Anyone know a good Permaculture designer in Toowoomba or Surrounds?????
