It is very surprizing to me the way the world is going , that not a lot of people are getting in to homesteading as a way to servive and make a living as well as making a difference in the world . Not every one was ment to be a Banker , car sales man or working in a big building in a little qubical as a tellimarciter . You can see i was'ent ment to be at eny of those places with my bad spelling , it the homestead for me

first off no one sead that oxen are a solution to all people ! the proof of oxen is in are hidden past and you will only find it if you look for it . Thank of the bigger picture , how much hidden power and resorcses are spent making a tractor ? how much corn would you have to grow to make a gallon of gas and what will it take to make it ? there is lots to thank about with it all , yes with money you can turn key your farm or homestead , that would be the ezyest , just sitting on the porch sepping tea and writing checks watching your workers work , to most this would sound good , but thats not me , but what do i know , i sertenly dont know how to spell , so what do i know about it all ,,,,

Balense is the key , looking at what you need and what you can do . central texas gets 35 inches of rain , whare as east texas gets 55 inches a year , more rain more grass . we are also setting up to grow more food then we need to sell it , most would do this with a tractor,,,, this is a trap ,, how meny carrits would you have to sell to pay off a tractor ? costing $5,000 to $20,000 and the calfs we got at the dairy farm for $70 for both holstens will take a lot less carrits to sale to pay off . with the cost of fertilizer going up , its nice to have the manure we get too . The oxen can also , pull fire wood and timber for building out of the forest for us , as well as move chicken tractors , wagons , plow and cut hay . Oxen are not for every one but long ago , oxen where what every one was useing and it worked for them for thousands of years ,,,,,,,
