Why Small Farms Should Care About Animal Nutrition

Horses in the field.

This week, I had another feature article come out on Hobby Farms. It’s about why even hobby farmers with one or two animals should care about animal nutrition. You all should! It’s fun to write for them, but sometimes it’s scary too! Obviously when you publish things online you’re going to get the good, the bad, and the ugly. I’ve even gotten some of that here. But for the overwhelming majority – you are all AWESOME! Now, I’m not saying we always will agree. I’m just saying that differing points of view are usually handled very well by all parties involved.

But with guest articles I write, people don’t hesitate to let me know how stupid, wrong, lazy, cheap, {insert negative verb of your choice here} they think I am. But that’s fine! It just means they aren’t my people. There is, of course, wonderful feedback as well – which is what I would rather focus on. But regardless, it can be a little scary when I know that I’m writing something that’s going to make some people mad! If someone cared enough to write me about how my chicken feeder was a stupid idea and waste of time, I can’t help but wonder what they will say about this article? But I know I can’t please them all – that isn’t how life works, and honestly, what fun would that be? Ha! And at the end of the day, I write what I know and what I know is the right thing to do for your animals. I always will, no matter what I get called!

Find out why you should be managing your animals nutrition and how you can do a better job - even if you only have a couple!

This piece is a little more technical then what I’ve done for the magazine before, so I’ll be interested to hear the responses. Let me know what you think! Most of them are via Facebook, so watch the Longbourn Farm Facebook page and I’ll be sure to link it over so you can weigh in too. And it’s totally ok if you call me obsessive or weird or wrong. We can still be friends!! That’s what’s great about life, we can all choose what we want to think and believe and still be friends with someone who thinks differently. At least that’s how it works here at Longbourn Farm.

So without further ado, here is the link to check it out!
