Are you getting ready for Spring? Looks like we are getting sheep and chickens for fair. We will have to see how the oldest child is behaving. His attitude has gotten him in trouble. I don't have to decide about Sheep until April 24th. They will be at another members farm. I know nothing about sheep but guess we are going to learn. The chickens will be here. I will build them a coop as soon as the snow is off the ground. So it will be a busy spring here.

Sorry I have not been on for a while. We have had a serious illness in the family.
Being a 4-H leader is not a bad thing. I would go to the county extension office and see what information they have on beef showing. Other wise I would check out some books. We are showing llamas for the first time this year. I have a lot to learn too. I have gone to the person who coordinates the llama show for our local fair. She has been a big help. Hope that helps.

  4-H projects
We started out with static exhibits, Arts and Crafts kinds of things. I would check with the local 4-h club to see what they recommend in your area. It is different from club to club and fair to fair. I would do a small animal like a rabitt or chicken for the 8 year old. It is an experience.

Let me know if you have more questions.

My goats are not all escape artists. My herd sire can jump a 4 foot fence though. Never thought I would see him do it until all 300 pounds just ran and jumped over. Put up 2 more strands of hot wire after that.

  Hello you all.

P2 got a new mag in. When you got the time you may want to check out www.randallburkey.com. You can get diatomaceous earth which is ground fossil shell flour. Some people use this instead of the chemicals that are out there in the market.

  Garlic and water
Our flock has a 4 gallon waterer. I take a stocking and put 5 crushed garlic cloves in the stocking and use a clothes pen to keep the stocking out of the float. The only fresh water is the water that comes from the float and I don't dump the water. Treat like this for an entire week, skip a week and then treat and then do it in 3 wk cycles.

  We don't do organic.

However, have your ever feed your flock pumpkin seeds or bust a pumpkin in the yard for them to clean? Nature's best or garlic in the water is good for that. Check out The BackYard Chicken Mag. And the best thing is that there is no withdrawal time on your eggs if you use the pumpkin seeds or garlic. You just got to get a schedule down and keep to it.

Another use for garlic is to take the paper off several cloves and put them in stockings and hang them by the nest. This helps with lice.

Our flock goes nuts when they see P2 or I carry in a BIG watermelon and bust it in their yard. It takes them about an hour to clean the melon to a rhyne thiner than a piece of onion paper.

From what I understand is that blackhead is a disease that turkeys "can" get from unwormed chickens. You don't know that the turkeys have been infected until they show signs of a blackhead and then death soon follows. Hope this helps.

  Well I might be getting some B Turkeys next year. But the owl got a roo and keet of our sons and we may increase the number of guanieas next year. We had either 1 yorkshire and 1 landrance or 2 of one kind coming to the place around April. I've been hearing about turkeys getting blackhead from chickens and my uncle who has load of birds (turkeys, chickens, ducks and geese) lost all if his turkeys due to blackhead. This is making me think if I want to introduce another species into the flock and then have our 8 yr old go out there and find them dead. I just want to make sure all my turkeys are in a row (so to speak) before we purchase any to introduce to our flock.

  The photo on my profile that you asked about is of Coral Mushrooms that we harvested out of the woods. If you have any woods around your place, just walk out and look around the base of trees. Each clump is about the size of your hand (some smaller, of course) and they look just like coral. The whiter ones are fresher, but you can also eat the browner ones. Another one to look for now is a big fat round one, they look just like hamburger buns. Thick and meaty like a portabello. After the rains we've been having, there are LOTs of mushrooms out there now!

As far as what crops to grow here in MO; we can grow just about anything, and a second crop of beans can be planted in september that can be harvested before a hard frost.
Tomatoes will produce into the first part of November. You can grow spinich all winter if you lightly cover the leaves with straw. Persimmons and pears are producing right now; the persimmons will get sweeter after the first frost. Don't eat them if they're not totally ripe; they will be VERY bitter! Squashes grow great here, peas, corn; carrots are a little difficult since the ground is so hard. Beets, too. If you build a raised bed and fill it with good dirt and compost, you'll be able to grow crop veggies in there.

They are just like kids. They learn from repetition and respect. We like Clinton Andersons website as well as we watch a ton of RFD T.V.

  Hi there,
Have not been on the computer much; been enjoying the nice weather while it lasts! (Suppose to be a tornado heading our way this afternoon...just started raining.)

I don't know what kinds of animals to advise for 4H, have never been involved with it. We've always been in the city. Can you ask at the school for info?

Battening down for crummy weather..... talk to you soon.

Your blog makes me laugh and think back to last summer when my 7 full grown boer goats decided to escape and make a trip about a mile up the road. We managed to fit all 7 in the back seat of my Bravada and yes it has leather seats , awe man I cringe at the thought of having to do that again. Funny looking back though they were all very well mannered in the backseat. They have an old station wagon that they get to lay on, climb on and get inside at will. It is very funny to go out to the pasture and see all 7 crammed into the station wagon thinking they are going to get to go somewhere.LOL

  Goats and Cheese
Dairy goat journal is a good place to read up.Found it on countrysidemag.com.Lots of great articles.Check out motherearthnews.com. also.I found cheesemaking.com is very good for the novice as myself.It's the New England Cheesemaking one that pops up.Definitely check that one out!One of the firt 2 sites,[not dairy goat journal], had a cookbook for sale on foods from the ozarks,so maybe that could give you an idea on what grows there.I saw corn and okra in ad!Let me know how your reading goes.

  Turkey Feathers
My turkeys have not really lost there tail feathers. I have had a show judge tell us one time that a mouse will crawl up on the chickens and turkeys when they are sleeping and chew the feathers off for bedding for there baby mice. I guess they could do that with the tail feathers. I also have seen them break them off when landing on the uneven ground. I will have to ask one of my girls when I see them and see if they remember it a being a question they were asked when showing them.

4-H was a very important part of my childrens life. It is very educational and a great place for them to stay busy and meet great friends that they will have for life.

Good luck with your farm.
