We had hay delivered today. Good hay.
After reading about pregnancy toxemia today I know that I have to improve the nutrition of my animals. Hay is really expensive this year. $4.25 per bale, plus $50 for delivery - brings the bale price up to $5.32 each.
Someday I will grow my own. Somehow, someway!
The farmer who delivered it was saying he has lost several animals this year too. It is reassuring to know that it is not just us newbies!
This better hay should increase the milk production in our goats, and sheep. More milk means we can care for our bottle babies, make sure the mama's are caring for their babies, and we will have enough for ourselves too.
