And then, there's everything one can get.... more time for the real important things, living and eating at the natural pace of seasons, independence, do your own wine...
So, since my nomadic plans are still waiting I decided maybe I'll try the contrary, to be a slave of the Land.
The good part is that only a few elder people still lives there, that's good. Elder people from the country side knows how to do things. They can teach me.
Nomadic plans would have entailed chasing a herd of cattle?
If the culture is similar to what it is here, nobody will teach you. You'll have to learn by watching and helping. Preferably since childhood, so you learn properly.
Too bad he lives across an ocean. I could of sent him a starter kit.

I haven't had rabbit meat for decades, but memory says that it's quite good.
You can trap rabbits!
I'd simply suggest he take a two week camping trip, with only what he could carry. If he goes to anything like a wilderness the problem would be solved!He wouldn't come back... He would have died from sheer ignorance long ago, were it not for "productive" citizens.

Now, for serious things.
I never liked donkeys. I thought they were goofy dumb animals. I was wrong. Moe was great. So much personality and so loving. I'll miss him.But no. It isn't all fun.
They can perfectly substitute a small tractor
As far as plowing the fields? Not so much. You'll wear them out too quick, so not "perfectly" anyway. Best to get yourself a mule for those tasks, or a draft horse if you want a perfect animal tractor.
There is pretty good money in running after yankee draft horses and bring them down south to sell to the Mennonites, for anyone wanting to go after it. A lot of traders do it. But can't compare to government incentives I'm sure. (Wonder if they'll pay me to raise them and ship them home? I'm good at producing manure factories, lolz.) Farmers don't pay any sales tax here but I can't recall ever hearing of someone paid to raise livestock like that.
Grandma always said cow shit was the best manure. I've never picked a favorite poop so you're on your own there. I know making a compost pile is a good way to recycle nutrients and field rotation is essential for keeping nutrients in the ground. And also manure derived from poor nutrition doesn't magically produce more nutrients. But I'm sure the hippies can give ya the rundown tho.
Donkeys are fabulous.
Usually here incentives are paid so you stop producing... Agriculture it's supposed to be just for the French the same way industry has to be for Germans, those are the basis of European "Union".
