    I clean mine with a water hose from outside the fence. Put up a good fence and don't let the kids go inside. the bedding is hay i throw over the fence, what they don;t eat they root it into the shed.

    New to raising calves

    JHM47 gave me the best advice on bottle calves,keep them hungry and make sure they are not on a soy based milk repacer. I raised 6 Jersey calves since last oct ,using his advice and they are REAL close to butchering size/age. Thanks JHM>

    The last time i raised pigs I bought 3 Duroc-X at 12 weeks old, they were around 50-60 pounds i butchered them at 7 months old and the lightest one wae 225 lbs hanging weight. so in my opionion that sounds alwful small for a 5 month old.

    Welcome, no matter what type livestock you get into, there is plenty of knowledge on this forum to assist with most issues. I think I've learned as much by reading here as I did growing up on a farm.
