Got home from day job and had to clear out fridge room for tomorrows milk. So made mozzarella, fromage blanc, butter, and used whey to make a batch of pretzels.

Another busy Sunday in the books. Danny got a stantion built for the cows. Lucy is pretty well behaved when tied to the fence but will step to the side , so that problem is solved. Still hand milking until parts come so I can convert my machine back to a cow set up.

Provision Farm & Streams of Mercy dairy goats

Provision Farm & Streams of Mercy dairy goats

GOAT MATH: Here is some goat math that we don't usually talk about: when we freshen a doe as a yearling and milk her for 300 days every lactation and freshen her every year for 10 years, she has hopped onto our milk stand and we've milked her 6,000 times (2x a day milking). When we have a baby goat born, we have given it sometimes 250 bottles before weaning. If we trim a goat's feet every 2 months for 10 years, that's 60 hoof trimmings per goat. Working with this animal day in and day out forms a bond that is very hard to describe to people who don't do this every day. All of this work doesn't include the sleepless nights when you know something is wrong and you've done all you can...the infinite scratches behind the ear or on the chest...the frustrating moments in which you're overwhelmed and desperately want to throw in the towel...etc. This is why she isn't "just a goat" and why it hurts so much when she dies, needs to be sold, or needs to be put down. This is why breeders can get so insulted when people haggle for the lowest possible dollar. It isn't just a goat. It's our time, our energy, our affections, and so much more. Some math can't be figured, but it's real just the same.

Veteran Farms - Where we have "Boots on the Ground"

January 3rd, 2019 President Trump signed into law the Veteran Small Business Enhancement Act. What that does is allows disabled veterans who own small businesses to get surplus equipment from the government as to them auctioning it off or selling it. 17 months later not one single piece of equipment, not a single chair, printer, tractor, computer or anything else has been granted to a Veteran Small Business. We continue to be told they are "waiting on guidance". Enough is enough. We continue to see tractors, trucks, skid steers, office equipment and other things that would make a HUGE impact to fellow veteran small business, not just our farm get sold at auctions. Today we contacted Congressman Robert Aderholt office for help with this matter. We are asking that each and every one of you contact your congressman and senators to find out why 17 months later GSA and SBA are still sitting on their hands. Was this all just a PR stunt by all members of congress and the President? This is not a political post, I am just asking our government to do what they said they are going to do, and do it now.
Thank you for anybody that reaches out to your Representatives to get answers.
Please share!!! .
