6 Most Profitable Livestocks for Small Farms

The most profitable livestock to raise will depend a great deal on the facilities you currently own, any improvements you plan to make and your ability to raise your own feed. Of course, the current market values for the animals you’re selling plays a role, too. As you consider the best livestock to raise, consider what you already have to work with. All livestock require room to browse or graze, a barn or shelter and sturdy fencing. How much land you have also determines what you can keep on your homestead. Insidermonkey experts made a list of most profitable livestock's for small farms.

Each of these animals has different fencing needs. Horses should be fenced with either post and rail or a combination of electric fence and wire or rail fences. Cattle, goats, sheep and pigs can be pastured with woven wire and electric fences. Chickens need little, if any fencing, and fencing is mostly to keep predators out of the hen yard. Each animal has different forage requirements, too. Some need a higher-protein diet while others can exist on browse and pasture.
