    with drought, has anyone ever fed sawdust?

    I read about people feeding sawdust, but it doesn't say how to break it down, also had a guy in the 50's that fed shredded news paper during the drought. Anyone done this and if so how to do it so the cattle can break it down and get the nutrients?

    Black Charolais

    What are your thoughts on black charolais. Spoke to a breeder. Not able to register except in Canada. No angus in them from the breeder I spoke to. Not sure of the actual process but they are supposed to be 100% Charolais. They bred 2 red charolias together and got black one. Then kept going.

    Spreadable Grass Sead?

    This is the situation, don't have a tractor, just an ATV with a spreader, and not the budget to rent one. Plus my place is so rough, it would need to be worked with a bulldozer to make a day of running a tractor worth it. I spread winter oats on top of the soil a couple of years ago in October...

    Electric Fence Pulsing Slower

    My fence is only pulsing once every 6 secondS or longer. A lot slower then it used to. I don't see or hear any shorts. Could cold weather do this to a charger? It's a Zareba AC 50 mile, I have it outside, in a bucket under a trashcan, so it's out of the rain. My other chargers are Parmak and...

    Got woken up this morning by the kids screaming about a coyote behind the house. I look out and one is chasing 4 calves ranging from 2 weeks to 3 months old.

    Ideas on pig water troughs?

    I have been through a few water trough ideas with pigs. Cattle mineral buckets turn into a mud mess after they step in them, tried a barrel, cut it out on the middle but some of the hogs had trouble putting their heads in. What do other people use?

    Fermenting Distillers Grain Safe?

    The company I get distillers grain from switched from whole corn to a finely crushed corn. Now the barrels I picked up I can hear bubbling just like a can of soda. There is a smell of alcohol. Is this safe to feed to my cattle or hogs? The stuff before I never had this problem.

    Mineral for Hogs

    Is there a mineral I should be feeding my hogs? Can't really find a solid answer on the Internet. I have one that has a syndrome where every once in a while his back legs give out and he dips and yelps, but it said this could be caused by stress or change in diet.

    Not too many birds flying this morning. I only shot 4. I didn't even see many song birds. There were some groups flying but not many and pretty darn high. Wondering if the storm affected the dove.
