Livestock Guardians
Using Dogs, Donkeys & Llamas to Protect Your Herd
Janet Vorwald Dohner
ISBN: 1-58017-696-8
229 pages.
$ 24.95
Well-trained hardworking dogs, donkeys and llamas are an increasingly popular and effective solution to livestock predation. Properly selected and managed, these guardian animals protect sheep, goats, and other livestock from wolves, bears, mountain lions, coyotes, and many smaller predators. This complete guide to working with guardian animals shows you how to select the right breed for your needs, establish deep bonds between guardian and livestock, and train your guard animal to carry out his duties reliably and effectively. Dohner’s practical advice will help you successfully integrate a guard animal into your farm for years of inexpensive, nonlethal safety and security.

COUNTRYSIDE is the truly original country magazine (established 1917) serving that branch of the Voluntary Simplicity movement seeking greater self-reliance (homesteading), with emphasis on home food production. This includes gardening, small-scale livestock, cooking, food preservation, resource conservation, recycling, frugality, money management, alternative energy, old-time skills, home business, and
much more.
COUNTRYSIDE features reader-written personal experiences and photos straight out of family albums, making each issue just like a long letter from friends who are living the good life, beyond the sidewalks.

  Toil, feel, think, hope; you will be sure to dream enough before you die without arranging for it.

  — J. Sterling
