Small livestock are great to have around. They are the best way to produce protein and fat we have. They do this with meat and eggs along with dairy in the case of things like goats. We have talked a lot about this in the past and we will do so again in the future but today I want to start zeroing in on fertility.
I am going to tell you about one of our biggest problems leading off today and yet one almost no one even bothers to consider, look at or try to solve. That problem is we are literally creating radioactive soils in the way we farm today and we are also creating a ton of far more radioactive waste.
The solution to this problem as is often the case is not easy but in the words of Bill Mollison it is embarrassingly simple and it starts with harnessing waste streams.
