    The disease which is deadly to hogs was initially found 2 weeks ago and reported as an isolated incident. The country’s second outbreak this week was found over a thousand miles away in a group of hogs that had traveled a long distance... Some feel this is bullish for US hogs as a reduction in Chinese supply would mean import needs for the country.

    How to Source Farm Interns

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published 5 months ago

    The Keenans were up to their elbows in infrastructure projects, animal husbandry, and a burgeoning farmstay business, and needed help in a bad way. Balancing a post and beam, lime plaster home construction project against caretaking goats and chickens, while juggling four human kids to boot, left the Keenans with little time for their personal lives. So, the family turned to the outside world for help. As a recent college grad excited about farming, I responded to their advertisement, and soon found my way to the delightful Keenan homestead... That land supports “just under 1,000 head of cattle, about 5,000 laying hens, 600 hogs per year, 20,000 broilers, and 2,000 turkeys...

The lady would, each week, load up her four or so kids, drive forty five minute each way, and pick up three gallons of milk in return... So, say you raise six hogs a year...

    Value Added Products - The future for farms of all sizes?

    By John Moody

    Published 6 months ago

    Many farmers have felt the pinch of falling food prices over the past year. Some sectors of the ag industry, especially dairy, are in a free fall, with our fellow farm friends hurting badly as low prices, consolidation, and other forces forcing many to sell off operations or even sell their farms. It is difficult days, but as I noted in my earlier article, things haven’t been good for US farmers in quite some time... For instance, a farmer making cheese or butter will produce high value whey, a perfect food for hogs... A farm could go even further, having the hogs turned into various sausages and other chaucertierie products...
