New pastures all around!

Springtime is exciting for us farmers. New life is everywhere, and with it comes the promise of new possibilities.

We rotate our pastures with the seasons and this week it was time for a new pig pasture. They had rooted up the last one entirely. This can be great because they rid the land of weeds, ivy, poison oak: leveling the field for the grass next year. It is an eyesore too, however. Such is life with pigs.

Thank goodness for move-able electric fences! This is what we use for goats and pigs, and it is very effective in keeping livestock in and predators out.
