Water For Cattle

Tue, 2016-08-23 12:23 -- Carole Soule

The pond was almost empty and the cattle were thirsty. There's grass for the cattle to eat. Rotational grazing practices help soil absorb rain water and long grass roots go deep to suck up moisture. But what to do about the lack of surface water in this drought?

Looking for a Boar Friend

Thu, 2016-07-14 13:57 -- Carole Soule

Our sows are looking for a boar friend and we think we've found the perfect match in, Bucky, a three year old Tamworth boar from Ossipee.  We have three breeding sows and will stagger their "dates" with Bucky.  That way we'll space out the birthdates for the piglets.  It's so much easier to manage piglets when they are born a few weeks apart.

Pig Roast and More

Wed, 2016-07-06 18:15 -- Carole Soule

Last week we had our first ever pig roast with a pig born on the farm in February on the coldest day of 2016. To keep the piglets alive I kept them briefly in our bath tub. Last week one of these babies, now 170 pounds, was the subject of our pig roast. The pork was amazing, the best I've ever had. Our guests said the same thing.
