    Katahdin body styles...

    I have no interest in registering stock....I've seen registered Katahdins in my state and in the next and in all cases they didn't even resemble Katahdins. They looked like miniature sheep, cow hocked, slender in the rump and chest, hay bellies, etc. I don't know where they were getting...

    Close to Lambing????

    Beautiful!!! Congratulations on your good, healthy and beautiful lambs! I think you are doing the right thing to make her feed him....it's better for him and she has plenty of milk! Plus, the fuss and expense of feeding a bottle lamb. No fun, especially in cold weather.

    Holistic pasture management/farming.....

    Yep, even the old, mulch hay is selling right now. That's how I know it was the hand of God for me to get 15 large round bales for free this past year. Turns out, that old rotten mulch hay is a better quality than what I bought for feed this year....I know who I'll buy round bales off of...

    That's a nice, good scattering of hay! How long does it take for them to go through a bale normally?

    Holistic pasture management/farming.....

    Uh....we buy the same kind/size and I roll them. :hide I even roll them sopping wet and half rotten, with a flat bottom from sitting a long time and rotting in place. I struggle sometimes to swing them around to roll them in another direction or to roll them uphill, but haven't gotten a...

    Holistic pasture management/farming.....

    Yes! And many folks are getting that without rolling out bales at all, just by running stock into silvopasture and feeding them there, which results in more of the native species getting to express themselves due to the fertilizer from the animals and the sunlight from thinning the trees...

    Sentry, Baymule’s Livestock Guard Dog

    I broke Ben of this when a pup. Was told by someone on the forums that was akin to not letting my husband give me a hug when he wanted, as that was how LGDs show affection. :gig Could explain why I don't have a husband, huh? I just gave him the Cesar Milan equivalent of a "bite" each...

    Holistic pasture management/farming.....

    Was wondering, Bay, if the hundreds you spent on seed could be used to buy round bales to roll out instead? The rolled out hay contains the seed and also the mulch that could start you a soil layer you need on top of that sand. If there is no soil, sowing seed in sand isn't going to yield...

    Holistic pasture management/farming.....

    Here's one of the weirdest new trends in farming I've seen of late and I can't even imagine how they think this will be sustainable in a crisis or how this will affect the cattle down the road. This is sort of like raising meat chickens in an industrial farm setting wherein they never live a...

    Holistic pasture management/farming.....

    Had to LOL at one of the comments to this video....this is EXACTLY how Mr. Judy sounds on most of his vids when talking about his cattle. He's so enthusiastic about what he does that it's contagious and makes me want to go out there and build some spider habitat.

    Holistic pasture management/farming.....

    @Baymule , that is so cool!!! I can't WAIT to see results like that in the hay I've spread out, though mine doesn't have all that good sheep poo on it yet, so I may not get as quick results.

    Split hoof

    Wowza! I'd almost be tempted to get some hoof glue to stabilize that so it doesn't widen too much with the pressure of walking...

    Split hoof

    Got any pics? I second the vote to trim it all you can and put her out on clean grass/soil, avoid muddy/poopy quarters/paddocks.

    Feelin' a bit sheepish...

    Me too, Bay. It will be so sweet to have lambs once again. It finally feels like we are making good use of the land.

    Feelin' a bit sheepish...

    This morning, with the weather turning cold and rain pouring down, mating season has commenced. Virgin ram met 7 yr old Rose, who was the only one that would stand for him. About wore him out trying to reach her successfully....he's still a tad short. Shine, who I thought was the only...
