We'v been under a mask mandate in NC for 5 months and had our highest number of daily infections one day last week. The numbers have been going up for weeks.
It appears that the mask mandate isn't working.
Some people are arguing that it isn't working because everyone isn't complying. I'm...
Guess who was Best in Show, and Best Udder in Show at the NC State Fair ?
That's right, the old girl still has it.
FYI, there was no Fair, but the Dept of Ag put on all of the Youth Livestock Shows.
Climate Control was Grand Champion Toggenburg. Judge said it was between her and Zamia for BIS...
Maurine finally got her project done. Objective was to be able to roll off a round bale that the goats to eat off of free choice. Be able to fill feed trough from outside. And, have water ( you can see the new yard hydrant) the plan being to have a couple of auto waters.
What do you think?
How's the bottle feeding going?
The seller did you a huge disservice in selling you dam raised kids at 4 weeks old to switch to a bottle. That's a tough thing to do.
You just have to work with them. You are going to have to hold them and literally pry their mouth open and force them at...
We actually just went and bought 3 hogs today. 2 were 350 lbs and the other was 320. Paid the farm $0.60 per pound. Leaving them on the trailer tonight and taking them to the slaughter house tomorrow.

She's 10 now , but she appraised 92 EEEE as an 8 year old and was 3rd placed aged doe with 1st place udder at the ADGA National Show that year. She was dry all last year, and we haven't had any goat shows this year. There is going to be a youth show at the NC State Fair and we may show her...
Probably the biggest effect covid 19 has had on my family is my 16 year old daughter, and the craziness regarding schools.
We made a big decision.
She's never been the greatest student in the world, so since everything has been forced online we decided it would work best for her if we just...
I don't have the hypothetical goat above for sale.
However, I do have a doe in milk for sale. I want to sell her as a package deal with her 2 doe kids at her side.
The doe is One Fine Acre Eclipse (D001815969) Her appraisal and milk records can be found on the ADGA Genetics...
They lost me when they said all the rioting was OK. Oh, that's right it was "peacful protesting", my bad.
It seems to me, that's what jump started the spread of the virus.
But, you go with what works for you. :thumbsup
I think a brag is in order here. Not because this is such a beautiful doe. But, rather because she is 10 years old due soon for her 9th freshening and still looks like a million bucks.
We must be doing something right. Or, maybe it's just something in the water. ;)
