re: New Feral Hog Poison Approved by EPA - pointdog33

re: Any Money in Cattle Farming? - pointdog33
Here's a link for starting a grass-fed operation done by Virginia Tech. It does a really good job of cost estimates. They take it all the way to market so you'll have to take out the things that don't apply to you. I will say I think they over estimate fence by a lot. Their estimate is for ful...

re: Any Money in Cattle Farming? - pointdog33
If you're doing it for a living, then yes you'll need a large number. If it's a side gig and tax write off, you can make enough to add income, but you have to choose a number of cattle that you can effectively manage while still holding your job. ETA: If you have all your equipment, such as ...

re: So looks like it's about time to plant some satsumas. - pointdog33
Meyer is the one that can handle cold, which is why it's the most common in LA. It's a good lemon, but tastes less tart than the lemon from the store. It's good to cook with, but doesn't make good lemonade. They produce a ton, so there's the issue of what to do with all those lemons. ...
