Re: Cruising with livestock -- any anchoring issues?

In the days of yore; long before there were freezers and A/C. Carrying livestock was the only means of having fresh meat. But those ships had pens built for easy handling the bullocks, pigs and chickens. Plus they had to have stowage for the feed also. Run out of feed and guest whose pet cow ends up in the stew pot.
