Happy New Year!

NEW YEARS GOALS ~ 2009~

~ FAMILY & FRIENDS - continue to enjoy every moment I have with them. Be spontaneous and have fun! Take nobody for granted!

~ FOOD - eat mostly whole foods, preserve more than ever before, grow/raise a good portion of our food.

~ FITNESS - continue to be consistent with an exercise regimen and ENJOY what mother nature has to offer. Loose a few pounds!!!

~ FARM - purchase solar fencing and get set up for cows. Learn as much as I can about rotational grazing.

~ FARMHOUSE - put up trim & bead board. Finishing touches.... lots of wood work. Install a new bathroom floor.

Cheers to another great year!

Happy New Year Kim! I usually don't set any goals... but I think that I should do this... at least then we can see if we met them or far surpassed them! Take care,
Janine

Great goals! And best wishes getting each one accomplished! Cows! WOO HOO boy will you have fun and be busy! Let me know if you have any questions, we have a heard of close to 200 now. LOTS to learn..wish you could come here and take a look first hand at feeding calving problems, vet checks..etc! There is a lot to learn! But I promise its doable! One word of advice though I HAVE to give even if you didnt ask for it...a lot of people are loud, use sticks and noisy things to get cattle to do what they want....dont even go there! They hear very well, the quieter you are, using repition ALWAYS keep things the same, they will be calm and cooperative...and number one rule..DONT BUY COWS FROM THE STOCKYARDS...they are there for a reason..crazy or sick, old, cant calve! LOL look for farmer selling...okay I could go on, but you didnt even ask for advice, I just love my cows and everything about them and love talking about them! LOL sometimes I get carried away....good luck on everything!
