Once you become a livestock keeper, one of the biggest challenges you may ever have to face is admitting to yourself that you got it wrong. However, failure to face up to this fact is what invariably results in animal welfare issues. Although you may not realise this yourself, it’ll be blatantly obvious to others. So, if things aren’t working out, or you’re struggling to cope, take immediate steps to cut your activities back down to a more manageable level.
