I grow dairy cows, Gulf Coast Sheep, Tamworth Pigs and plan on adding chickens and turkeys to my rotational grazing. The food forest in my pastures is becoming my hedgerows that I am growing on my fence lines. They feed my animals during drought and dry seasons, they add variety to the mix, but some of it is also good for me to eat, like pumpkins. By using the fence lines, my animals get better shade, I have less fence fixing problems, and domestic dogs can't get through or over as easily so my sheep and fowl are much safer. A few fruit trees may wind up back there, but mostly nut trees for the upper canopy. I am slowly researching what trees will fill in my hedgerow, but things like sage bushes have traditionally been used as feed for sheep in drought seasons. Just think of the food forest as food for your critters. Some of us are parasympathetic and require animal protein to survive, also, I have no desire to promote any species going extinct. so, growing food animals is part of our farm. For us, permanent paddocks for rotational grazing is much easier to look after. We are already in our mid fifties and found that temporary fences just didn't work, our animals quickly figured out that storms will knock them out. So, escapes after bad storms were common. Hedgerows are a form of food forest that are traditional, and need to come back. Sage bushes will be a good place to start, as they grow naturally in your area. Animals are not all I grow, I am working on a Hugelkulture bed right now, and I raise rabbits as well. Lots of garden beds that are being slowly converted to a polyculture, as well as an orchard being changed over to a guild/food forest for humans, mostly.
