    From Our Trip To British Columbia

    Spray Or Graze It Hard? BSE Lesson

    Ever try This?

    Experiment time. We are now doing our own very non-scientific work. Today my neighbour came over for a visit. He brought his all singing and dancing no till drill and a bunch of corn seed he had left over from this planting season. Every different variety under the sun. We have a small 5 acre...

    OK - before anyone asks - Yes! These animals have been seen by a vet - twice in fact. The last time only a week ago. De-wormed regularly / diet changed as per discussion with vet AND feed nutritionist who specializes in cattle, but has been kind enough to put me in touch with their small...

    Old Tyme Recipies

    I never was a very original kind of guy. I tend to "borrow" all of my good ideas from others - and unfortunately some of my rather poor ones as well.

    End Of Comment

    Until recently I have not really paid much attention to the messages people put at the end of their posts. Perhaps I am just slow or dimwitted - or just not the observant type. But lately I have been reading them. The two I like the best belong to the folks below. In fact I read them on a...

    Ever Do This?

    Well, I had a couple of visitors last week and the semi-permanent guests arrived to stay a couple of days later. As tough as it is here, one of my neighbours is in worse shape. He and his wife came to us and asked us to take in their cattle. They culled out the worst of them and sold them for...

    Unusual Practises?

    Well, I do not usually start a topic, but something happened this morning that made me wonder a bit. Despite living in a rather populated part of the world, we live in an isolated piece - the lane is about 1/4 mile long, and there are no houses to be seen from any part of our land. Because we...
