Mmmmm...cows. Steaks, burgers, jackets, boots...
Oh, sorry. I was think about the things cows are good for. Mucking however is bad. Very bad. Needless to say I have no cows, and therefore, no muck.
And in the spirit of having and maintaining a muck free existence I've limited the livestock on the farm to 2 cats and whatever birds, rabbits and deer want to hang out here.
All that aside you're correct about some of the benefits...a few square miles of emptiness and a couple of largish buildings to fly in makes for some quite enjoyable days here in the middle of nowhere.
