This is totally outrageous and I see the familiar footprints of the Animal Rights folks all over it. They will continue to attack us on many fronts and use government agencies to do their dirty work for them. The farmers in Michigan need to rise up and demand that this overstepping of power by DNR be stopped at once!
With husband, Bill, we raise:
Mid and Mini Jersey cows and Wagyu cattle
Babson/*Turfa desert bred Arabian sport horses and breeding stock
Large Black pigs
12 cats in charge of everything
I Border Terrier who serves at the Cat's pleasure
i too am heart broke. my little woody an american guinea heritage pig would be killed. NO WAIT i think america did this already to the indians. my guinea hog is an original american hog. he was here before the whites came. he was with the indians. he was here first. they have now raided and killed pigs. forcing growers to kill their own stock. i am sick

This story just played on the news on my radio in NY 10 minutes ago. It's amazing to me how long it takes from when this stuff starts to happen until it hits media. (Although maybe it's been other places I haven't seen?)
Janice, wife to carpenter John. Loving our kids, building our home, milking Irish Dexters, raising White Chantecler and misc. chickens, keeping pasture raised pigs in a pig tractor, and minding the homestead in WNY. I only have time to check in occasionally...

mommamary: Researching dual purpose milk and fiber goats. Does anyone have recommendations?

mommamary: I am researching goat breeds that have Both good milk and fiber for spinning. Are there any good ones?
Jul 7, 2014 19:03:44 GMT -5
Jenny at Sagehill: Problem w/fiber goats is they put their energy into fiber, not milk. Cashmere goats might work, but their fiber needs a special dehairing machine to remove a LOT of coarse hair from a bit of cashmere.

Jenny at Sagehill: Angora goats might work except they aren't bred to milk much or longer than their kids require. They're rather smaller animals and can be finicky.

beelady: i had an angora doe that was a precocious milker. huge udder too... right now im crossing angora buck on nubian does saving the doelings that show mohair/cashmere and breeding those onto angoras..

Chatty Kathy: I've been out of the KFC, milking mass quantities. I cannot seem to find Joann's current diary entries and saw a post asking how she is doing. She has been such an inspiration and help to me. I'd like to know how she is.
