Its like saying 'why is nobody planting black walnut trees - the wood is so valuable!' For most of us its hard to invest in a future such a long ways off when we are struggling to get by NOW.
dont you have family farms???
The permaculture way would be to make the system start paying now, but if you want cattle now, you have to feed them grass or other faster growing forage.
I like the idea and I want some cattle, so I think I will keep it in mind and plant nut trees in my cattle pastures. Even if it doesn't work out for the cattle, something will eat it so why not?
