    IP addresses, banned, assume different names

    Ok, so this has happens here. Someone gets the boot, and then a few weeks later, maybe longer they come back reinvented as someone else. Do they just get the user name shut down or does the IP address get banned to? I ask because I'm on another site. The forum is very specific and it's not...

    So cool so cool. Last year on the advice of my vet, I got to pull some stunts. All I will say is it involved a 14 gauge needle as a last resort. This cow this last year had mastitis and treatment was long but successful. This year about a months ago I noticed the quarter swelling and told...

    calf issues

    Ok, I knew that this season would be tough. All of last year's flooding then poor pasture, some hay issues would lead to some calving issues. The first round of calving the calves came out strong. Lost a few, head back in the birthing canal, bag over the face, heart defect, and something else...

    days like these

    I am so upset i could, well, rant, scream, punch, but I think i will take on typing I am not upset the calf died. I mean this cow has been battling pnemonia for two weeks. With the drugs, the fever, the illness it was anyone's guess if the calf would come out alive. What upset me is what...

    Bees Bees and More bees

    So last year we took amazingly heavy losses which set us on our backsides. This year the loss rate is less than 5% which is amazing...still not out of the woods yet. But the kicker in this is the bees are a month ahead of schedule. This is good, but can also cost us if it gets cold. And as...
