I disagree with no one missing a calf or goat if things get that critical. `Sounds like a good way to get yourself unnecessarily shot in these parts. They say that during the depression you were hard pressed to find a stray cat or dog...stories of people bringing their livestock into their homes to protect them from rustlers. Commercial livestock won't last long once the supply lines of endless grain and antibiotics is shut down. I would guess in many places neighbors will be working together and that entire communities will be guarding the livestock that is left, not just individual farmers...and I would imagine they will be shooting first and sorting it out later.
