01/28/2006: "The steers"
Well we had a change in plans. Chuck went to auction instead of T-Bone. Mostly because we were informed that buyers prefer animals without horns.
Chuck weighed in at 1105 pounds and brought 77.5 cents/pound. A nice chunk of change!
We have a few hundred pounds of corn left and then T will be headed towards one of the local meat lockers.
And we have a pig at the neighbors that will be headed there next week.
We got our Murry MacMurray catalog and one from Sunnyside Hatcheries yesterday. Tammy is leaning towards getting some ducks and geese this year along with the chickens.
We would have to provide some sort of water for them to splash around in but they would be interesting to have around.
I would like to try some silver laced wyandottes this year for our layers and maybe get a few of the more rarer breeds to spice things up.
We would like to see about getting Christopher involved in 4-H and think chickens would be a great project for him.
