Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Nothings wrong with sheep, but if we're talking about food self-sufficiency (which I am) I think sheep are higher maintenance. You'd have to source an old and very hardy sheep to get within touching distance of a goat.

My view is that goats do well on very steep slopes and light woodland, pigs do well in pasture and woods as well.

So you can exploit what are marginal environments for sheep or cattle. I suspect we may be dealing with marginal environments in the years to come and intensive cattle and sheep farming may not work so well. At marginal levels, goats and pigs are the way forward.
