Triple purpose do exist (Icelandic sheep for example) but the less specialized an animal is the less efficient it is in its task. Add onto that your limited land base and it becomes a challenge.

Are you able to do rabbit cages? A few cages of Angora Rabbits can provide fiber and free up your pasture for milk and meat.

The smallest size ruminant purpose bred is probably the small African goats. Two Nigerian Dwarf Does for milk and mothering, inseminated with Pygmy Goat sperm to produce more meaty kids is my suggestion.

So I'm trying to merge this account with an old one (one which may or may not have ever posted here) and on multiple browsers I am receiving the general permies error message when I follow the 'approve this merge' link in my email.

An error has occurred.

most of the time people get this message it is because your browser has gone wonky and is trying to do silly things.......

Trying to merge an old account (that I am not sure I ever actually posted with) into this one and getting an error message.
Crap I just realized my KS email is different from my email here

Should I change this one and report back to you Paul?
Wood ash plus water, heated in a fire then disolved in water and allowed to absorb it then mixed with fired clay (terracotta)

Uploader suspects sand will also work in lieu of the terracotta but has not tested it.
