I start carrying water tomorrow, UGH We turned off the hydrant tonight so it doesn't freeze up. I have a hand cart I load up and put food and water on for individual coops/pens/pastures.
Looks like we possibly will be adding cows ~FINALLY~ if it doesn't fall through, DH got a call tonight from a dairy farmer worker that hauls milk. I told Rob I want a heifer to raise for milk and babies, and a bottle bull calf to feed the family.. They are kept with the cow a week before they are sold. I have high hopes of raising my own calves going forward. I know 2 local farmers that keep bulls so I don't want/need one ourselves. There is always AI if necessary too. They will be Jersey (hopefully) or Holstein (probably) about a week old. I just adore calves, what sweet babies Really excited to keep them again.
