Yup! My people are good to me!
We work 8 hour shifts, I was working the afternoon shift the past two days, so I didn't start until 12:45, but finished around 9:30 (I know it works out to about 9 hours). I got the 6:45 today and the 5:45 tomorrow though.
Most of our milk here is used in cheese making, and sold storefront, or used in restaurants and fine dining owned by the same company that owns the dairy. We do use a fair amount of milk for our bottle babies too. Currently we are milking 21-22 goats twice a day. And as you may have seen in the...
Not sure about the testing. But it is incredibly heavily regulated. It gets heavily cleaned daily, the wood slats allow the poop to go through to the concrete and not be visible to visitors, we clean under that every couple days.
Been here almost a week and absolutely love it. I never wasn't a goat person, but I am definitely becoming a goat person more and more each day.
Couple pictures just for the fun of it. Learning a ton but got so much to still learn.
Also, I don't know what else to share, but I...
Well, I figure it is time to come back for another update.
The spring has flown by, and I will be leaving for my next adventure tonight. Kinda crazy for me, but I am also super excited. Hopefully they will let me share pictures, but I am off to take care of dairy goats, and learn a ton. Should...
Morning, been up for a while. Got the laundry going, and most of my stuff packed. Tossing in a few things that I think I will need for the next three months. Got a couple last errands to run today, and then moving this afternoon for a while. May or may not be gone from this site for a while...
Morning! Got some pounding rain here last night, but we need the moisture.
Going to make my coffee in a second, finishing up school stuff here, and going to a concert tonight.
Y'all have a wonderful day!
Morning, tried to sleep in this morning, had a horse show yesterday. Got some homework to try and do this morning. Hoping to rest a bit before church, running a 5k after church. Can practically do that in my sleep at this point. Beautiful morning here, y'all have a blessed day!
Been interesting to leave so much behind, but also so exciting. Definitely grateful every day for what 4-H has done for my life.
Will try to share goat dairy stuff if its allowed, I'm certainly excited for that adventure!
Where is life taking Poka these days?????
Figured I might come on with another update.
I'm not sure I have really discussed it here, but in August of 2021, I left the place I grew up in, to move up to Wyoming, to just change things up. The journey has not come without a challenge or two...
Good afternoon, just figured I would pop in here. Slept in this morning, guess I was tired from being home for 36 hours. Just went for a run, and about to go to the barn. Making a peeps rice crispy treat this afternoon and unpacking and doing laundry. Beautiful weather here for a couple days...
