Does this mean your veg garden is on their radar?I noticed that the deer have been eating my tulips that are planted up front by the veg garden
The Farm Bureau newsletter this month had some articles about dairy farms, their decline,, their improvements, etc. Fairly shallow for much of the info but, one farm in VA has one to automated 3X day milking. Bet that cost a bundle!
I hear you say "pack samples" -- wondering, how much in each sample? Are they from each cow or, every 5 or ???? Curious.
While the farmers don't get what they should, or need, when they sell, the stores keep raising their retail price. Even eggs....almost double in price from a month ago.
At work yesterday, the customers wanted milk & eggs. No eggs there and I just kept thinking.....should have brought a few doz and sold them on the sidewalk! Heck, I only ask 2.50 per & theirs were 3.75. No milk in the customer coolers. Plenty in backroom coolers and works were too lazy to bring it out!!! Which reminds me, I need to use the 6 gal in my frigSome of my goats think they are little cows! Really, 2 gal per day each.....I can see why some families go with the smaller breeds.
