Swine Chat / Carry Head High
« on: June 01, 2011, 12:22:52 AM »
I was at a jackpot show this past weekend and seen a lot of nice pigs. Mine did good even though they didnt place I was still happy with how they moved in the ring. However I seen a lot of pigs trotting around with their heads high and the judge said the exhibitors really worked with their pigs. Well I work with my pigs 2 times a day and they dont do this. How would you go about teaching a pig to hold their head up?

Wouldn't the farms insurance pay for it?  If you are required to use your vehicle for work, your work should pay you, or run it through their insurance.

As for them only wanting to pay $550, tell them you wanted a car with no scratches.   ;D

 Not saying the other shops can't do it right, but if in the future you need work done on the same spot, your insurance may not cover it.  Due to it not be done by an approved shop before.  Just my opinion.

That was what I was wondering why they wouldnt just put it on the farm insurance ??? And the last point is what I been pondering on, what if it is bad workmanship on the repair job? My insurance isnt going to cover it.

Chiangus...lol I thought about it but all they drive is beaters, if it was the boses wifes new car, I bet he woulda charged it to the farms insurance n a heartbeat.

I was wondering would them renting the farm be the issue e dosent want to turn it it??

Well I need ya'lls opinions, I got a new 2011 Kia Rio Like 2 weeks ago. Well yesterday at work a guy movin headgates with the skidloader hit the side of my car making a nice scratch in the drivers door. My car was nowhere in the way it was in the designated parking space at the farm. Well my boss tells me to get a quote, I called my insurance to see who is the approved repair shops are in my are and there is only 2. Well one was $902 and the other is $895. Well today when I came in my boss was like can you go to such and such body shops(which are not approved by my insurance, the jo shmoe joints.) That they dont wanna claim it on their insurance due to it to go up, and he said it would make mine go up( I wasen't born yesterday, I know it being their fault wont affect my premiums) that they want to pay no more that $550. I mean I just got this car and want it to be right and if it isnt done at the approved shops that it could affect me in the long run and no turn around. The issue is I also dont wanna loose my job over this :-\ so I dont know what to do. Its a big dairy farm that I work at. Also note in the picthat my car is a wonderful color with matallic flakes in it. Please tell me what yall would do, Im so flippin confused :(

Try feeding him Glu-coat for a month and see if he doesn't loose his edge. It worked on one we had last year.
If he is kicking while you are working on him, put him in a shoot, throw a rope around his flanks and tie him to one side, the rope wont allow him to kick, then rinse, blow out and comb while hes tied by the flanks, maybe he will figure out your not trying to hurt him. I have attached a picture to give you an idea of where the rope goes.

Im confused about the rope idea, In bull riding the bucking strap goes there to make them buck, when it comes off their all fine walking around. Wont this idea do the same thing as a bucking strap? ???

Tonight stacking my new feed delivery, I got to looking at all the feed labels. and noticed my horses SR. feed has 10% fat. I have a dairy feeder steer that isnt putting on weight with his grower feed and hay the feed has a 5% fat. Well my question is has anyone ever fed a steer horse feed?  He has been dewormed and is eating everything, I am using Honor Show Chows Power Fuel but I have to keep special odering it and its more pricey than a bag of my horses triple crown sr feed. Any advice ???

Goat/Lamb Chat / Exercising Lambs.

I was wondering how everyone else works on exercising their lambs. I put mine on a track with about 2ft jumps and later work on the handling such as bracing.

My lambs brace well when near a solid object but out in the open they step sideways. Any tips on how to get them to brace right out? ???
