chicken feed

A busy week

This week we have mostly been scanning, serving and AI'ing the pigs so between mid july and august we will have six new litters on the ground  , Two more to put to the boar but will wait a few weeks.

On the plus side two full litters have been booked, and fingers crossed there are some tidy breeders in there to fulfil the order book.

This years litters have seen us introduce ad-lib feeders to the piglets/weaners and this alone has cut back 100% on waste creep feed saving us 's so they should help keep the costings down for the summer litters.

A rolling stone gathers no moss.
