Just a word ...

... on the weekend.

I picked up three new pigs on Thursday. They are from different litters; one is about 80 lbs, one is about 50 lbs, and one is about 40 lbs. This great. They will be ready at different times.

The 50 lb pig is a Duroc, a beautiful brown/red color.

One issue has arisen. The pen for little pigs borders on the large pig pen. The border area in the large pen has been the mud hole for the large pigs. But with the new pigs here, for some reason, the large pigs have started doing their business in the mudhole, instead of at the other end of the pen. This makes for messy work and it means we have to try to form a new mud hole.

We worked hard on Saturday on the milking shed/slaughter house. We have one wall to complete-then of course we have the roof, doors, painting, etc.

I also have 50 chickens coming in this week. We have some work to do to get ready for them also.

Busy days ahead.

Oremus pro invicem!
