Had a coolish day today, wind just seemed to pass right through you. Put a beanie and a coat on most of the day. Been putting in straw to all the grower pens of which there are 7

Also done the sows and little pigs, just trying to shift sows and little pigs to a new nursery pen. dont feel like going down this afternoon to close the gate, but might wandered tonight to see what is going on. Shall see what the wind is doing....might not either.

up early this morning and put out lactating sow feed. the mill has a few problems with a fan that is worn out and an auger that needed new bearings. but the fan is our problem

I have a New Holland 352 and have approached some of the companies in the States to find out what I can about this machine seeing they are built over there.

So it is in bits for now, but I also have an Allbulk machine which holds 2 ton and I can do their feed in this for now. I use both and it will put pressure on the other machine and the tractor.

We had some rain last night but not enough to measure in the gauge.

Nobby was in full swing yesterday mating some of the his girls that I weaned 4 days ago He comes to the fence for a pat and a cuddle. When I go in to the pen he is a bit bossy, but if he works then fine....... I would like to breed a bit of his colour in to sows to produce another line.

If the white would increase around his face and head it would be good. We dont have Herefords here in Australia, so to produce one would be just great.

Have been out baiting for foxes, say a cheeky fox playing in the long grass last week, and that night it rained, not good for baiting on a wet night..

Had a lazy afternoon as I dont get too much time off.

Going to be 30 celcius tomorrow so the cool change is short lived.

Got to collect the eggs and feed the two lambs that I have. One I call "Pop" as he is the greedy lamb of the two and does anything he can to disturb the "Eye" from his feed. Mind you "Eye" is a whole lot bigger but a big sook none the less and likes a little milk.
