Owen Hablutzel came by. Kristie has been itching to grill him on going hayless, so she took him around the laboratory.

Ryan and Jesse posing for their future album. We were trying to see if we could that cool tipi picture again - but maybe clearer (and the tipi was currently suffering a pig infestation).

So much to build .... and I haven't unpacked my sawmill yet. This is a pooper and a workbench - some assembly required.

Did that plant have hairy foliage or was it smooth?

Are you simply using the acreage as a feeding ground for the pigs, or do you have some design intent on this particular ground after the pigs have worked it over? What is the paddock size the pigs are on? What feed, if any, are you supplementing for their diet? Is the electric fence direct grid tie in, or are you using a remote solar panel to charge your controller? What variety of pigs do you have? how many? where did you buy them and how much?

Thanks,
