I hope you have enjoyed the nice weather we have been having. We've been getting some things done around the farm because it's so nice outside.
I thought today would be a good day to answer some of the questions you've sent me.
|No, we don't have a daddy cow. A daddy cow is called a bull.|
Bulls are not very nice, they are hard to handle and we don't
like to keep animals on the farm that might hurt children who visit.
We have a steer, named Remi. He's not a daddy cow because he can't have babies.
|We have a mommy cow named Echo.|
She's not a mommy, yet!
Her calf is due on March 25th.
How many more days before she has a calf?
|No, we don't have pigs.|
We aren't allowed to have pigs in our town,
that's the law.
|This is a good question!|
We have flat head shovels, spades (shovels with a round end), pick axes,
manure forks, rakes, pitch forks, garden forks
|Bryon, Matt, and Tim shovel the manure and mess from the stall to the tractor.|
|That is a lot of manure!|
We use it on our garden and we share it with anyone who wants it for their garden.
|This is a good question! |
How much hay do you have?
|This is what the barn looks like when it's ready for more hay.|
|How many bales of hay can you count?|
How long do you think this hay will last?
