TBF 143 :: Net Fence for Sheep, The Farm Crawl, and a Hard Lesson Learned

**As I transition to I am quickly realizing I'm not as web savvy as I had hoped! In the meantime I will be posting here as well for those of you subscribed through RSS ... and hopefully will have that fixed soon.**

We physically survived The Farm Crawl, but it was a bit mentally taxing. The day was beautiful, the farm was in great shape, we had a good selection of pork for sale, and the people were awesome! There was one down part though and it is what made me a bit mentally taxing ... the numbers were down (both from a sales and attendance standpoint). I am extremely thankful for everyone that was able to show up, but was a bit thrown by the differences we had seen from years past. That's what sort of threw me off a bit ... well that and hustling to get my spring projects (yes I really mean spring) done before winter sets in! Thankfully though I had a lot of great questions in the hopper so I'll do my best to answer them ...

:: What Questions Are We Tackling This Week ::
  1. What do you do if an animal needs to be put down?
  2. What do farmers need to know about taxes?
  3. Have you used sheep netting?
  4. Rotational grazing with sheep, but not cattle. Does it work?
  5. How about pigs ... apple cider vinegar, loading/sorting pens, and getting them on the cart?
