cattle and sheep on Adak

If one were desiring to start a community resource herd of cattle [beef and dairy] and flock of sheep on Adak, what breeds and sources of animals can you recommend? As background, I know Angus have a different feeding pattern strategy vs charolais, not that I'm interested in those breeds, but there must be particular breeds that would do well here.

What is wrong with my plants

Good morning; We are a first year peonies farm on the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska. We have had a very good rate of plants coming up and they appeared to be very healthy. Shortly after the corals set buds I started noticing some yellowing and rolling upward of some of the lower leaves. These now appear to be a wilt of some sort and are spreading. Quite a few plants, mainly Corals and, Festivas have the rolled up leaves. A few black leaves, mostly yellow/brownish, but not dry. The soil is still moist. We have not watered this year. I have attached too many photos but they all seemed important. Many thanks for any advice, pointers, tips Etc. you have to offer. I have lots more photos if needed. Thanks
