    Oh deer! Deer damage and what farmers can do about it

    Published May 21, 2018 

    It is that time of year again, at least in my parts. As things go from the tunnel to the field, all our friendly little four legged foes start to to make dinner plans… and breakfast plans. Some are making midnight snack plans as well. Raccoons, rabbits, and the worst of all in our area - deer... Sacrifice patches coupled with hunting permits could be a promising way to attract nuisance deer to an easy to dispatch location on a farm, similar to how hunters plant plots of crops for deer or use feeders to keep their interest in a particular spot strong...

    What Farmers Need to Know About Mycorrhizae

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Nov 2, 2018 

    If someone asked you, “How do plants take up the water and nutrients they need?” you’d probably tell them through the roots. But did you know that for many crops, those roots aren’t working alone?That’s because most plant species associate with mycorrhizal fungi. What is mycorrhizal fungi? University of Alberta biological scientist JC Cahill says that mycorrhizas are actually the interaction between a fungus and a plant. Although there are many different types of mycorrhizae, the only one crop farmers need to be concerned about is arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF), as 65% of plant species associate with it... He adds that it also helps ensure there will be something available to feed the mycorrhizae...

    How to Make Fermented Chicken Feed
    Fermenting chicken feed is an easy and inexpensive way to improve the nutritional value of your chickens food, leading to overall better health -- and quality of eggs! It takes very little supplies and time to do. Come learn how!
    Prep Time: 5 mins Fermentation Time: 3 d
    Equipment
    Large glass jar, mixing bowl, bucket, or other container (BPA-free preferred)
    Ingredients
    1-2 servings chicken feed of choice
    Instructions
    Add enough chicken feed to the container for one or two days servings for your flock.
    1: Pour dechlorinated or filtered water over the top of the feed. Add enough so that the feed is fully submerged and has a couple inches of room to expand. (If needed, simply leave a glass of city tap water out at room temperature overnight to allow the chlorine to dissipate.)
    2: Cover the top of the container with a loose-fitting lid, plate, or other makeshift lid. It doesn't need to be air tight.
    3: Set the container in a location with moderate temperatures for three to four days to ferment (such as out on the counter, in the garage, etc).
    4: Check and stir it each day. Add additional water if the feed has absorbed it all.
    5: After 3 to 4 days (our chickens prefer day 3) give them the fermented feed. If it hasn't absorbed all of the water, you can either drain it off and discard, or reserve the liquid to jump start a new batch of fermented feed.
    6: Repeat as desired, and develop a schedule. Since it takes a few days to ferment, some folks start staggered batches every day (put a date on the container!) in order to have a finished batch of fermented feed available at all times.
