Here in TN if you have a 2nd meter, then you get charged commercial rates which stinks but I have all the power I need now.


solar payoff not reasonable to pay for difference?


my bill is only $100/mo which is pretty low for CA so to pay off solar, it's always been like 15-20 years and really, it would encourage me to switch to electric water heater, electric stove, not sure if there is electric hvac.  also, i don't want solar on my house. shade areas would be ok, but you can't get good loans or tax breaks or companies to do it unless it's on the roof of your house because if they make a loan, they want it attached to the house for valuation purposes to eliminate theft, repurposing etc.


plus, at that point, i would want batteries and thats another 7-10k or more depending upon maintenance or maintenance free batteries.


really, solar only seems to pay off for people that have a bill of 200+ and really 400+ dollars per month.


solar for water pumps are going in a few places around here.

I've had good luck crossing the clubbies on Hereford cow's.  The Baldy  is a King Cobra and the Fakeford is a Dakota Gold.

Kinda late to the party Steve. I really don't have much to add other than I did buy a bit of McKinley & Burwell. Won't get calves until June and late Setp.

Dandruff is usually caused by a fungus called Malassezia so yes it may be worth a shot. That's why Sullivan's make Fungus Fighter. Another to approach it would be to get some Fulvison capsules for your calves. one treatment usually works to rip them of ringworm but 2 are recommended. Ringworm is also caused by a fungus. Good luck. Also maybe just run a stinky old goat buck in with em. The old timers say that a rank Billy goat will keep calves from ever getting ringworm and a lot of feedlots have a billy running in their lots.
