I've never found haveing livestock at home is all that hard as long as your set up decent. I have 32 horses right now and 46 head of cattle, plus we have a few hogs. Takes me 45 minutes most days to take care of them the days I have to put round bales out it take a bit longer but if I fill all 14 round bale feeders I can go two weeks before I need to put more out. We have automatic waterers so thats not a problem in winter in summer the pastures have stock ponds. We go on vacations for weekends and up to 10 days just have a neighbor or freind stop and feed the dogs, throw some wood in the boiler in winter and check things.
We own our livestock they don't own us.
