That is an awesome website...   :o
Will check it out periodically.  I like the way you have a little category for each animal.

The charges against Susie have been dropped due to a technicality. The evidence was planted by the cat, who also dug the hole to release the dog. Please plan on releasing Susie from her cell immeditally.

So when do you plan on bringing in the Alpachuas, Emus, and Goats?

It is a very nice site.

No goats in the plan... I have a friend who's father has 200 Emus so H*** no to that...

I do not love alpachas as the commercial seems to think i should...

Bees and cows - good
everything else - baaaad

Cows are the second dumbest animal on the farm--only the Turkey is stupider.  My experience has taught me that the 3 dumbest animals are: (Drum roll please) Sheep, Cows, and Turkeys in decending order.

Bees and Pigeons can almost always find their way home.  And I'm fast becoming very knowledgeable about the birds & the Bees but I think having 5 children did more to educate me than the Birds and the Bees did.

Cow are dumb but they taste pretty good. We butchered a 700 lb Angus mix bull calf last winter and that is the best meat i have ever eaten!

I once had a pet cow, my family called him Big Mac :!:   One day while at school my dad took him to auction.  He was pretty smart, at least until he broke my mother's toe by stepping on it, which was the end of him.  :(    I now have two red angus/zebu hybrids, heifer and calf, bought them with my own $.   I have to sell the calf, anybody in FL want a cow?

Actually, cows are smarter than people think. I have a cow that learned how to open a gate (see my website below and look at the animals section. Yesterday, my donkey opened the door of the chicken coop and let all of the chickens out. Then the dogs began chasing chickens killing 3 of them. After 3 hours of chasing chickens down with a fish net, me and my wife were exhausted...

The cows just laughed and laughed....

Central Fla, citrus county.  Probably will be ready to sell once I wean her this month.  She's not "purebred", so about $400, since a heifer will go for $800.  I'll let you know 'as events warrant'.   :wink:

Thats a little too far for me to go at todays gas prices.... Calf prices are high right now though. My neighbor just sold 3 calves (400-500 lbs) for $1.25 per lb....

Hi-Tech,

I can see you've never had to milk them for a living.  
Goats will climb up on the milking platform for you, eat your weeds and unwanted brush, and provide you with 2-3 quarts of fresh milk daily from each milking doe.  You can also run 3 goats in the same space it takes for 1 cow.  You should re-think your commitments before you're committed. LOL

Nice try Brian but I cannot drink milk (hurts my stomach) and milking a goat is definately not something I want to add to my already super long list of things to do everyday.... Besides, what if i get up tired and accidently try to super my goats and milk the bees?

Hi-Tech,

>>I cannot drink milk (hurts my stomach)

I have that problem too, I'm lactose intolerant besides being diabetic and a lot of other things.  Goats milk doesn't have lactose.  Give it a try.
