Figured I'd ask:


  • [li]Anyone else is going?[/li]

    [li]Anything people are curious about?[/li]

    [li]Any photos you would like to see?[/li]

    [li]Any questions want answered?[/li]



  • No guarantees I will get everything answered, but can try to get a few things answered.
    (there seem to be a few questions people have in other forums

    I do have a few questions:

    How many different animals on the property and what breeds?
    Does he allow interbreeding of different breeds?
    What supplemental feed is being fed and is any of it genetically modified (such as corn or soybean)?
    I believe he uses a little bleach in his water as he is washing off his birds during butchering – how much?
    What weight are his pigs when he butchers?
    What is planted in his pastures for the animals to graze?
    Does he know the actual ingredient to Basic H?  Is he still using it as a dewormer?  Does he think routine deworming is necessary?
