Top 5 Post Apocalyptic Livestock for Preppers

Are you preparing for tough times? Hoping to become more self sufficient? I’m always thinking ahead and planning for the possibility that food in stores will become more scarce, or so laden with chemicals that I don’t want to eat it.

If you like to eat meat, dairy, and eggs and are concerned about the future availability of these staples, stop by and read my latest article on The Prepper Project. I’ve had the experience of raising livestock as a kid on a small farm, and have a bit of an insider view on what livestock will give the best return for your work and feed input. Here is my list of the best livestock to own if you really need to feed your family without going to a grocery store.

Do you have your own list of livestock you’d like to keep for self sufficiency? I’d love to hear your thoughts on which animals you would want to keep if you had to depend on them for sustenance!
