Latest -- @Baymule and @frustratedearthmother get ready!!! 7 FREE AGH pigs. 1 boar and 6 females. 1 to 1.5 y/o. Well, I have to decide and advise today. Are 75 miles out but.....all together now, that means 6 bred girls. :ep I mean, I know this, if together!! On the fence with this because...well, 7 can be 57 in fast order. Need to call some people fast -- who wants to partner???? :idunno:eek:.

I would have a hard time passing that deal up! Free meat is free meat! If they get to be too much you can pay it forward and give some away too!!

Thought HARD....can't justify taking on those coming piglets Dec thru Feb!! While my others were great and covered the young, low temps can kill. Won't butcher the sows like that...and winter presents not just cold but feed and watering concerns. Have plenty of those other animals to consider. Told her to call next one on list. Just would be wrong timing for me.

Plus my freezer is so full I'd have to thaw an ice cube to fit it in there! :lol: lucky me! Not buying another one.

Oh so tempting for a great deal. Proud I thought a couple hours more! :old. If spring I would have had them here already.

Was it required they all go together? If you could get just one or two, would that have been more manageable even in winter?

Not an option. All at once....several were waiting their turn for such a deal. 😁 it is best for me at this time at the farm and in this economy and it's limits, oddities. Ever had 30+ pigs looking at you to feed? And pigs go into a trance like state when farrowing. They lay down and keep popping, not stopping to clean, etc. Wet and cold can be deadly. Then I have 15 goats to kid...similar timeframe. Like I said, hard thinking what's best for me and already here to handle. Was a great deal!! But, not my first rodeo. :old

Good morning! :frow

:caf. It's this time....coffee and computer. Just a touch of light frost here and there. Pretty breezy and I could do without that. Not complaining, just saying. Actually it's gonna be a nice day. Sun coming along for it all.

Delivered more customer eggs yesterday. Worked my stores and have off thru Sun. What I get done depends on weather. A front is coming for Thanksgiving. :hu

Everyone enjoy your day.

Raining...
Got the locks changed at the farm, picked up a bunch of garbage where DH plowed. He was super happy to find an old IH plow for sale for a reasonable price. So got it home and took the borrowed one back to it's owner. We had the soil tested and will be fertilizing soon. Got a new garage door ordered for the farm garage.
