  • Dealing with cold weather and cattle

    It’s very important to consider the special problems of cold weather and cattle. Cold increases the rate at which feed passes through the digestive tract. Less time in the digestive tract means less digestion of nutrients. In other words, a high-fiber, lower-digestible feed provides even fewer nutrients in cold winter weather.

  • Another year in animal husbandry

    I use this annual reflection to track our record of animal husbandry since we began raising a few hens for a personal egg supply in 2007.  
    Those few hens turned into over 100 in a few short years.  It was contagious, I suppose, as our taste for productivity grew and we added not only more eggs but meat chicken and lamb to the mix.  
    I think one of the most provocative questions there is for small scale producers comes from folks who say “How can you kill them?”  My answer is that I don’t.
