IT'S CHOW TIME DOWN ON THE FARM
Here we see Louisa loading the trailer and the truck with hay. This hay is so fresh and chock full of clover, you feel like taking a chomp yourself. We are lucky. When others say they can't find any hay, our supplier Ray Keith from Temora can always manage to find best quality feed for our sheep. The bales usually flake into 'biscuits' or 10cm slices which peel off easily. But this fresh fodder sticks together, making it a little difficult to keep up with the hungry hoards following the truck. (I'd have some shots of this but it is impossible to feed and photograph at the same time. Maybelater...)
THESE ARE SHEEP NUTS
They are a drought ration, a little like a breakfast cereal. They contain wheat, oats, barley, sorghum, bran, pollard, molasses, lucerne meal, maize meal, and other good things. They are very digestible. But we prefer the original grains, so while we wait for Mr Keith to deliver the oats and barley, we feed these nuts.
I am a spinner and am interested in getting wool. I wonder if you would be interested in an adoption program that costs more than the $35.00 to cover the cost of shearing the sheep so that those who are interested in getting the fleece from their sheep could adopt a sheep and get the fleece each year? How much would something like this cost for the person who is adopting the sheep? I know that this is taking off more in the US and I would love to be able to do something similar here in Australia.
Please let me know if this is something that you think is worth looking at.
