Asked in Farm Crops, Mathematical Finance
Why should you mix livestock with crops and have a diverse farm?
Two main reasons: 1) Crops and livestock tend to be mutually beneficial. The crops feed the livestock, and the livestock waste feeds the crops. 2) The more diverse a farm is, the more protected the business is from changes in the market. If a farm only produces one or two crops, the farm is at much greater financial risk from a downturn in the market, whereas it is much less likely that four or more products will all be down in the market at the same time.
