When choosing the right breed of goats for other than grass cutting, analyzing your needs is very important to determine whether you need breeds that are best in meat, milk, or fiber production.
Rabbits are fun to raise when you are properly prepared. However, ways of making sure rabbits remain comfortable and safe can be a challenge during the winter given the cold temperatures and predators.
Geese unlike chickens are not being raised intensively, finding breeds locally can be a challenge. There are both wild and domesticate geese.

A 10-10-10 is a fairly common mix and as it states has an equal mix of each at a concentration. In this case you would need 10 pounds of fertilizer to add 1 pound of each nutrient to your soil.
