Well, when I graduate High School, my family is going to move to the Kerrville area of Texas. We will most likely have a ranch of 100 or so acres. What species would be best for the area and ranch size?

Blackbuck and Corsican rams


For it is not the quarry that we truly seek, but the adventure.

Axis,

You need to talk to a bunch of hill-country ranchers and find out what's working and what isn't.

I have heard tons of stories of African hoofstock being to fragile for Hill Country winters.

If I wasn't already raising Ibex I would be raising pot belly pigs.

Hey, I had one of them. Girlfriend dressed it all up & wanted it to be a house pet until it rutted up the linoleum floor. Then it got too big to walk, and became friends of a horse following it all over. No more pot-butted pigs.
