Fine batch of weaners this year!
As the seller claimed, this red wattle cross are growing like weeds! Other than being enthusiastic youngsters at times. They are calm ,friendly and happy piggys . And eating like, well hogs! So far, its #150 of barley & peas, plus a large dose of Diamatetious earth to keep the parasites down.
Rotational pens are greening up nicely. Another week or so and I'll let them into the first pen.
Getting ready to let them into the first pen. Within 2 days it will look like a bomb went off in there.
Meanwhile the comfrey plants are growing like weeds and boy oh boy Piggy's LOVE comfrey!
Using my new high tech design grain storage system. I've grown tired of packing it from the shed 100' away.
Its water tight, wind resistant , the deer won't mess with it. Unfortunately IF the elk wander by they could do some serious damage. But my biggest worry is bugs bunny. .. if he locates it, he could chew his way into the sack... I'm gambling on the elk staying away and Bugsy only getting a little before I notice... We will see. I've got another 600# in the shed ,just in case.
