all we ever wanted to do was farm  a hundred acers with some beef and goats

 

they say no one has interest in small family farms

we are a dad  45   daughter 24  son  

we would beef farm in manitoulin islands    where  people dont even care anymore

or look after the farms and fences

but  where do   people like us  get the money when you have no family

to help

we are willing to work and live in a  garbage house  for anyone that would help us

get the farm and pay it  off over the next twenty years

by  then i will be  sixty and my son and daughter could take over

WPX 2024: Vantek offers products that can withstand the harsh pig barn environment

Paul Vanberg, founder of Vantek Concrete Restoration and Protection, and Ryan Albright, Product Manager at Vantek Concrete Restoration and Protection, recently spoke to The Pig Site’s Sarah Mikesell at World Pork Expo in Des Moines, Iowa, USA. Paul, tell me a little bit about Vantek’s product offerings and what you are showcasing at World Pork Expo? The most important thing that I have learned over the 40 years in this industry is that the pig environment is a really tough one. People do not understand how difficult it is to maintain equipment and concrete products and protect their investment in buildings and facilities. What we have done is designed products that can withstand the acids and the wear and tear from the animals in these facilities for years and years. So it’s a worthwhile investment. Our focus has been primarily on concrete restoration of slats, floors, walls and then also the metal surrounding the building on the inside and the exterior. Our focus is maintaining th

Cattle futures drift lower, lean hogs down - CME

Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) cattle futures turned lower on Tuesday, as a lack of fundamental news and limited trading in the cash cattle market had price drifting down from the recent rally, Reuters reported, citing traders. Meanwhile, CME lean hog futures in the nearby and front contracts ended down as funds continued to short the market as a glut of slaughter-ready hogs continued to outweigh the levels of consumer demand, market analysts said. Wholesale prices for US pork have generally turned lower or remained relatively flat, traders said. The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) on Tuesday morning priced the pork carcass cutout at $98.98 per hundredweight (cwt), up 4 cents from Monday. Though pork belly prices firmed, loin prices continued to fall, USDA data shows. Consumer frustration over stubbornly high food prices, and ongoing uncertainty when interest rates might ease have been weighing on the pork market for a while, analysts said. New York Federal Reserve Presiden

AASV: Tongue tip fluid sampling for PRRS

Processing fluid has emerged as a sensitive tool for porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) monitoring, suggesting the use of tissues as viable specimens. Tongue tip exudate has recently gained attention as a viable postmortem specimen for PRRS monitoring. A study by Mariana Kikuti, DVM, PhD, and colleagues at the University of Minnesota, aimed to determine whether postmortem sampling of suckling pigs allows for the detection of PRRSV and determining the sensitivity of each postmortem specimen studied. Two farrow-to-wean farms undergoing a wild-type PRRS virus that had decided to pursue elimination were conveniently selected. Samples were collected at the farm some 8 and 20 weeks after the outbreak detection. Postmortem sampling of piglets found dead or euthanized was conducted. Postmortem specimens consisted of individual sterile swabs of the nasal, oral, and rectal cavities, tongue tips and blood collected directly from the heart. All specimens were stored and
