Homesteading economics

"But don't you like meat?" queried the young woman as we talked about my goat flock. I had just given away the last of my crossbred goat kids to a family who raises them for their own winter meat supply. 
"Oh, I like our own farm-raised meat well enough." I replied. "Just not well enough to spend my milk supply raising meat."
I'd far rather have my milk for putting in my coffee, making cheese and sharing with my friends and family. Homestead economics.
