thank you for letting me have them. they are in their new pen and in time will introduce them to the goats. right now they have a ton of green grass to eat and time to get use to their new environment.

i have a place near shiner if you need to get rid of them. i have around 20 acres and only 13 goats so far so plenty of space and forage. would have to figure out how to shear them but willing to learn.

My friend is trying to figure out how to lower his soils ph levels to optimize berry production. Would planting them around Evergreen trees work or would adding crushed shells or calcium help with growing berries?

would de work if you made a line at your entery points or do they only fly to get into your house. i would suggest guinea hens but it might be to late for that and most people cant take the noise. thanks for telling me about them now i have another bug to watch out for lol.

just bought over a 150 acres and the land is mixed pasture and trees. close to harrison and really beautiful. area gets around 40 to 45 inchs of rain a year. wells are very deep, from what i have heard they vary alot but to epect about 500 feet. but with 40 inches a year you could catch alot and proper mangement could make it last. supposedly there is a dry spell for two to three months in the summer so that is my worry and reason i bring up the well. don't know about if they are accepting or not but when i get back from my deployment i can get a better feel for it. land is a very reasonable price i figure i paid about 1500 for pasture and 500 for woods. and the big plus is the privacy and feel of no one around. also the town of harrison seems to be big enough for a nice market and branson is just 40 minutes away with an even bigger market.
i plan on using electric mobile fencing so i can change the paddock sizes and put them where i can best use the land but i'm thinking the ponds are just to far apart. i think i'm going to have to rethink a few things if they are drinking so much water. i understand why but wow thats alot of water. i was hoping to just get a big truck with a big tank and a troth on the back so i could back it up to where ever i need it but that would mean i would have to have a 500 gallons or so just for 10 cows or do i have mine number off. hell i think they would even dry up my ponds lol.

thinking about getting a few cattle on the new land and i'm trying to figure out how much water i would need to get them every day. the land does have five ponds but there is alot of space between them and if i want to mob graze them i will sometimes have to bring them water which is difficult because i don't have a well on my property.

Any updates on raising the ossabaw breed. Looking for a good breed to raise and i understand they are easy to raise and good at forging on their own. I have also heard they have a great taste, dont know if that is the pig or the feed they eat or maybe both
