If you plant them with animals you'll never see the plants again.
Pigs will take the roots, poultry will take the shoots, goats, rabbits cows wont even get a chance to demolish them. All these animals will demolish the plant at any stage. I've tried growing them in the duck pen but if the ducks have access to them before there 5 feet tall they'll push them over and chomp it down.

in everyone elses experience, which varieties taste the best in your opinion, also varieties that are good for windbreaks
and i am thinking red rover or wild PJ's from oikos because they grow 12 / 15ft high respectively, that a tall windbreak and lots of biomass, so what is everyones opinions on those varieties?
