Well we must have had a mini tornado go through...we have tress down branches every where and a pig hut some 8 metres long lose it roof and it slammed in to the side of a silo put a gouge on the side of it and then slid past and hit the lean too and squashed the guttering and stopped. tine very where, patio tubing very bent up and battered....some parts I have actually not found as yet. Supports that went across the hut to hold the tin on..... I have one of them but not the other two. damage not very wide and not very long either and we got 4 mm of rain and that is all.

To day I put the roof back on but flat instead of leaning/slanted.....dont want the wind to get underneath it and put it back where I found it the other day. Have wired and tech screwed today all day

We are expecting rain so the little pigs will be dry and warm. They were given hay on the weekend and they have managed to spread it every where.

Also crushed one load of grain and put it out and got another one in the mill. Just got to add dust and put that out for my dry girls.

shifted 2 sows that are due may be tonight or tomorrow, feed encourages them in to the farrowing pens. a hot wire and a gate keep them there.

Our new farrowing area was made of rabbit netting never again it has been a pain. but pallets on the walls of the runs have stopped the pigs from leaning on the netting and pushing it on to the electric fence and shorting the whole piggery out.

Just need to find a good solid solution for the gates....as these are also a drama.

do I add a new "cocky gate" with ring lock or do I go see what i can get at the second hand steel shop..... might do that and may be get around the problem of girls and piglets getting out.

expecting rain tomorrow......so it will be cooler, has been hot today and yesterday and all week end. think I am looking forward to winter bit tired of the hot weather and the muggy days.....
