I recently stumbled onto these documentary videos taken in Yakutia (Northern Russia/Siberia)
I thought that this farming one had some interesting ideas that are similar to what I see posted around here:

*Barn built of round timbers - floor also looks like the cows are standing on a floor of round logs?
*Manure around barn to insulate
*Walking cattle to the lake for water due to lack of running water




This is the 2nd by this youtuber that I have viewed: I plan to watch more, time permitting.
