Lat month we planted winter forage in the south pasture. I hope that it comes in better than last year. Tried a whole new approach to planting this year. Split the pasture with rye grass and triticale this year. My son Joe helped with the planting.
The chickens have been doing a great job keeping us in eggs to the tune of eleven dozen a week. Way to go girls! I have been feeding them pears from the pear trees and vegatable scraps as well. I enjoy being around them, they are such busy bodies. They come running when I am around, and it is hard to get anything done near them.
We had a first calf heifer that calved but didn't know what to do. I ended up penning them up together and let mother nature and God go to work. Everything turned out OK, but I was really concerned for a while, thinking I might have to be a surrogate.
The wild hogs have been tearing up the newly planted winter forage, so I have decided to do some hog control. I actually took down this one while bow hunting deer.
