Most people have two really good reasons for making their own livestock feed: it’s much less expensive than purchasing commercial feeds, and you can control the quality and ingredients. As fantastic as those two reasons are, there is one final reason that anyone wanting to be self-sufficient should do as much as they can to produce their own food for the animals they raise: as long as you are buying feed from outside sources, you aren’t able to be truly self-sufficient. You are relying on outside sources that may not always be available, and you are at the mercy of the prices they charge for sustaining your lifestyle.

Thankfully, it is not really that hard to mix your own feeds. Of course, the larger the animal you are feeding is, the more difficult it will be to grow enough to support its needs. Growing your own feed does take space. Since some homesteaders do keep cattle and often keep horses as well, we’ll start with producing feed for the largest of the common homestead livestock animals. However, keep in mind that smaller varieties of livestock such as chickens, goats, and pigs (rather than cattle and horses) require less space for growing the ingredients for their feed.
