I asked for questions and you listeners came back with some great questions! The only bummer thing about all of those great questions is that I’m not sure that I had equally great answers. So, take a listen to the episode, check out the question topics below, and then I’d love it if you’d chime in with your thoughts. I’m guessing with the vast array of knowledge in this group there will be some great thoughts!
- Do you assist in your hogs’ farrowing?
- How is the family doing?
- What is your favorite part about chickens and how about having them in the winter?
- Improving efficiencies when raising pigs (both time and money).
- Am I getting ready for spring?
- Do you AI your livestock? Why or why not?
- Oats in the hog ration?
- Do you speak French?
- What about loans when it comes to farming?
