00:00:00,140 --> 00:00:02,338

00:00:02,539 --> 00:00:04,469

weekend we got a lot of stuff going on a




3

00:00:04,669 --> 00:00:07,839

6

00:00:11,519 --> 00:00:13,450

weekend a little early I took off work

00:00:15,419 --> 00:00:16,000

afternoon




9

00:00:16,199 --> 00:00:18,560

get a jump start on weekend




10

00:00:18,760 --> 00:00:20,720

and we're gonna be so busy this weekend




11

00:00:20,920 --> 00:00:21,620

I think it's gonna be actually a little




12

00:00:21,820 --> 00:00:24,489

difficult maybe even get two videos




13

00:00:24,689 --> 00:00:27,440

completed and posted there trying to get




14

00:00:27,640 --> 00:00:29,419

two videos will be posted to YouTube and




15

00:00:29,618 --> 00:00:31,609

I've been successful so far this weekend




16

00:00:31,809 --> 00:00:34,128

we'll probably put that to the test and




17

00:00:34,329 --> 00:00:36,469

so we got a lot going on so tonight is a




18

00:00:36,670 --> 00:00:40,009

Thursday night 621 in the evening and




19

00:00:40,210 --> 00:00:42,318

we're on a road trip to go buy some more




20

00:00:42,518 --> 00:00:46,038

livestock so this opportunity actually




21

00:00:46,238 --> 00:00:49,248

just came up to a few days ago if we're




22

00:00:49,448 --> 00:00:51,459

kind of jumping on the opportunity and




23

00:00:51,659 --> 00:00:55,608

so what do you guys think we're getting




24

00:00:55,808 --> 00:00:56,658

tonight so we're gonna get some




25

00:00:56,859 --> 00:00:59,119

different livestock tonight so obviously




26

00:00:59,320 --> 00:01:01,038

the livestock is going to fit in this




27

00:01:01,238 --> 00:01:03,469

crate back here and I plan on getting




28

00:01:03,670 --> 00:01:05,869

probably two and bringing them home and




29

00:01:06,069 --> 00:01:07,299

this dog crate so they're gonna be young




30

00:01:07,500 --> 00:01:09,948

animals that we're gonna be bringing




31

00:01:10,149 --> 00:01:11,509

home so what do you guys think that is




32

00:01:11,709 --> 00:01:13,579

so we've we've talked about it in




33

00:01:13,780 --> 00:01:15,099

previous videos this is something that




34

00:01:15,299 --> 00:01:17,448

that I'd like to have to have on the




35

00:01:17,649 --> 00:01:19,239

homestead and




36

00:01:19,439 --> 00:01:20,799

if we were going to be able to get to it




37

00:01:21,000 --> 00:01:25,390

this year so we're going to a farm at




38

00:01:25,590 --> 00:01:28,299

6:22 at night we're taking a road trip




39

00:01:28,500 --> 00:01:29,859

about an hour way to a farm




40

00:01:30,060 --> 00:01:32,849

this guy's got probably 15 different




41

00:01:33,049 --> 00:01:35,439

young animals for us to pick from so




42

00:01:35,640 --> 00:01:37,030

we'll be able to get there we're gonna




43

00:01:37,230 --> 00:01:39,700

look through all these all his livestock




44

00:01:39,900 --> 00:01:41,649

and see if we can pick out a couple to




45

00:01:41,849 --> 00:01:44,019

bring home so what do you guys think




46

00:01:44,219 --> 00:01:46,299

we'll be bringing home tonight




47

00:01:46,500 --> 00:01:50,120

you guys will find out you second




48

00:01:58,819 --> 00:02:00,780

well we just got done picking up our new




49

00:02:00,980 --> 00:02:05,429

livestock it's in the cage behind me




50

00:02:05,629 --> 00:02:06,989

I don't know if you can hear it but




51

00:02:07,189 --> 00:02:10,640

anyway let's see what we got




52

00:02:10,840 --> 00:02:13,110

if you can see them they're hiding back




53

00:02:13,310 --> 00:02:18,420

there we ended up getting two pigs so we




54

00:02:18,620 --> 00:02:22,110

got to amp Shire cross pig they're kind




55

00:02:22,310 --> 00:02:24,210

of hiding back here see if I can show




56

00:02:24,409 --> 00:02:26,969

them to you yeah so we ended up these




57

00:02:27,169 --> 00:02:28,770

are feeder pigs okay so we bought a




58

00:02:28,969 --> 00:02:31,110

couple feeder picks we're gonna raise




59

00:02:31,310 --> 00:02:33,509

these for meat and then at the end of




60

00:02:33,709 --> 00:02:35,430

the year we plan on butchering these so




61

00:02:35,629 --> 00:02:40,250

that is the purpose of these pigs but




62

00:02:40,449 --> 00:02:42,330

we're gonna hopefully raise those




63

00:02:42,530 --> 00:02:43,920

throughout the year and then by the end




64

00:02:44,120 --> 00:02:46,020

of the year we'll be able take those to




65

00:02:46,219 --> 00:02:47,730

the processor and and we'll have a bunch




66

00:02:47,930 --> 00:02:52,050

of meat for the freezer so these are a




67

00:02:52,250 --> 00:02:58,590

hamp shire cross pig and so I guess a




68

00:02:58,789 --> 00:03:00,030

Hampshire true a full-blooded




69

00:03:00,229 --> 00:03:01,910

Hampshire's black with a white belt




70

00:03:02,110 --> 00:03:04,770

through the middle of it and there was




71

00:03:04,969 --> 00:03:06,539

there was basically there was something




72

00:03:06,739 --> 00:03:07,969

looked like that there was two different




73

00:03:08,169 --> 00:03:10,319

there was two different litters of pigs




74

00:03:10,519 --> 00:03:13,980

there and so the ones I think they were




75

00:03:14,180 --> 00:03:15,569

belted I think they wanted the most out




76

00:03:15,769 --> 00:03:16,368

of them




77

00:03:16,568 --> 00:03:20,269

and these black ones here I think they




78

00:03:20,468 --> 00:03:21,080

were kind of the middle-of-the-road




79

00:03:21,280 --> 00:03:24,679

price I think and then they had some




80

00:03:24,878 --> 00:03:26,239

spotted pigs the spotted pigs were a




81

00:03:26,438 --> 00:03:29,480

little bit smaller but they were I guess




82

00:03:29,680 --> 00:03:32,450

the least favored in the color and




83

00:03:32,650 --> 00:03:33,679

everything but anyway they were the




84

00:03:33,878 --> 00:03:35,929

cheapest and of course I think they




85

00:03:36,128 --> 00:03:37,640

thought for meat pigs we should probably




86

00:03:37,840 --> 00:03:40,849

buy the cheapest one but and then we




87

00:03:41,049 --> 00:03:43,069

probably should buy the spotted but




88

00:03:43,269 --> 00:03:46,399

since since this is our first pigs and




89

00:03:46,598 --> 00:03:48,770

we've never raised him before these




90

00:03:48,969 --> 00:03:50,209

black ones ended up they ended up being




91

00:03:50,408 --> 00:03:52,879

bigger and so basically picked out the




92

00:03:53,079 --> 00:03:56,390

two bigger picks and if we wanted to get




93

00:03:56,590 --> 00:03:57,890

the probably the biggest and the




94

00:03:58,090 --> 00:04:00,530

hardiest looking pigs that they had so




95

00:04:00,729 --> 00:04:02,390

basically that move they don't prove our




96

00:04:02,590 --> 00:04:04,610

luck with pigs since this is our first




97

00:04:04,810 --> 00:04:07,730

time so they are already castrated and




98

00:04:07,930 --> 00:04:11,719

all basically ready to go anything I'm




99

00:04:11,919 --> 00:04:12,719

saying




100

00:04:12,919 --> 00:04:21,000

hey doctor tail doctor tails so they




101

00:04:21,199 --> 00:04:22,650

were yeah so they're basically ready to




102

00:04:22,850 --> 00:04:24,090

go we don't have to really do any of




103

00:04:24,290 --> 00:04:28,639

that so that was another good thing but




104

00:04:28,839 --> 00:04:31,379

we we ended up getting these it's kind




105

00:04:31,579 --> 00:04:32,670

of a spur-of-the-moment thing so we




106

00:04:32,870 --> 00:04:34,620

ended up getting these and we aren't




107

00:04:34,819 --> 00:04:37,379

really prepared for so we don't have a




108

00:04:37,579 --> 00:04:39,329

hog inmate or anything like that so I




109

00:04:39,529 --> 00:04:41,790

think it'll be fairly easy to make a pin




110

00:04:41,990 --> 00:04:44,850

for these two pigs but tonight what




111

00:04:45,050 --> 00:04:45,990

we're gonna do we're just gonna get home




112

00:04:46,189 --> 00:04:47,610

we're gonna put these and a little pin




113

00:04:47,810 --> 00:04:49,468

in the barn and we're just going to put




114

00:04:49,668 --> 00:04:51,270

them in the barn overnight and then




115

00:04:51,470 --> 00:04:52,829

hopefully tomorrow we'll kind of mow




116

00:04:53,029 --> 00:04:54,660

down an area clean up an area and then




117

00:04:54,860 --> 00:04:57,629

we'll fence in spot for these pigs




118

00:04:57,829 --> 00:04:59,550

so we'll probably fence it up a little




119

00:04:59,750 --> 00:05:01,730

area for the pigs with a little shelter




120

00:05:01,930 --> 00:05:04,770

put electric wire inside so they can get




121

00:05:04,970 --> 00:05:07,968

trained to the electric wire and then




122

00:05:08,168 --> 00:05:10,430

then another week or so down the road




123

00:05:10,629 --> 00:05:13,199

actually electric fence in quite a big




124

00:05:13,399 --> 00:05:15,600

area so they can kind of go around a




125

00:05:15,800 --> 00:05:18,090

group and have a nice bigger area to




126

00:05:18,290 --> 00:05:20,439

kind of roll around it




127

00:05:20,639 --> 00:05:22,329

right now we're not really prepared so




128

00:05:22,528 --> 00:05:25,838

we've got we've got to make a place for




129

00:05:26,038 --> 00:05:28,538

these pigs you know this weekend




130

00:05:28,738 --> 00:05:30,579

we've got fainting goat or pickup this




131

00:05:30,778 --> 00:05:33,399

weekend we've got the seed drill we got




132

00:05:33,598 --> 00:05:34,600

it written is we're going to plant a hay




133

00:05:34,800 --> 00:05:36,939

field this weekend we just got a lot of




134

00:05:37,139 --> 00:05:39,819

stuff going on this weekend we also got




135

00:05:40,019 --> 00:05:41,109

our raised bed garden we've pretty much




136

00:05:41,309 --> 00:05:42,850

got all our beds made I never got them




137

00:05:43,050 --> 00:05:45,100

filled with soil so I get a chance I'll




138

00:05:45,300 --> 00:05:47,049

be filling that with soil trying to get




139

00:05:47,249 --> 00:05:49,949

the more of the garden so busy weekend




140

00:05:50,149 --> 00:05:52,389

we got a question for you guys though so




141

00:05:52,588 --> 00:05:53,588

people are gonna say you shouldn't do




142

00:05:53,788 --> 00:05:53,829

this




143

00:05:54,028 --> 00:05:56,169

this is probably bad idea but we've




144

00:05:56,369 --> 00:05:58,899

named several of our animals and people




145

00:05:59,098 --> 00:06:00,369

Christ says you shouldn't make anything




146

00:06:00,569 --> 00:06:02,978

that you're gonna eat but anyway do you




147

00:06:03,178 --> 00:06:05,619

guys have any suggestions you know for




148

00:06:05,819 --> 00:06:08,919

for these little guys you know what




149

00:06:09,119 --> 00:06:10,329

their name should be I'm sure you guys




150

00:06:10,528 --> 00:06:13,499

could put some pretty funny suggestions




151

00:06:13,699 --> 00:06:15,669

leave it in the comments below if you




152

00:06:15,869 --> 00:06:21,100

got any ideas for these guys and maybe




153

00:06:21,300 --> 00:06:22,660

well you know we'll pick out a couple




154

00:06:22,860 --> 00:06:25,629

names for these pigs but I'm sure you




155

00:06:25,829 --> 00:06:29,100

guys will come up with something decent




156

00:06:29,300 --> 00:06:32,379

yeah name suggestions for these baked




157

00:06:32,579 --> 00:06:34,540

little bacon bits here in the back just




158

00:06:34,740 --> 00:06:37,389

just let us know and we'll pick a couple




159

00:06:37,588 --> 00:06:40,569

of them to name the pig anyway that's it




160

00:06:40,769 --> 00:06:42,910

guys this is the this is our new




161

00:06:43,110 --> 00:06:45,639

livestock on the homestead I think that




162

00:06:45,838 --> 00:06:47,019

these guys will be pretty entertaining




163

00:06:47,218 --> 00:06:50,410

to have and finally we'll have something




164

00:06:50,610 --> 00:06:53,309

that will just fall for it scraps so




165

00:06:53,509 --> 00:06:55,179

can't necessarily give everything




166

00:06:55,379 --> 00:06:57,100

probably to the chickens and the goats




167

00:06:57,300 --> 00:07:00,189

so now we actually have something that




168

00:07:00,389 --> 00:07:01,929

we can really throw the food scraps and




169

00:07:02,129 --> 00:07:04,468

everything to and they can eat it so a




170

00:07:04,668 --> 00:07:06,819

couple little garbage disposals back




171

00:07:07,019 --> 00:07:10,209

here so we're gonna go check on the pace




172

00:07:10,408 --> 00:07:12,489

this morning and when we picked up the




173

00:07:12,689 --> 00:07:14,619

pigs we weren't prepared at all - you




174

00:07:14,819 --> 00:07:16,629

know - how was the pigs so we ended up




175

00:07:16,829 --> 00:07:18,939

throwing together like a makeshift pin




176

00:07:19,139 --> 00:07:21,519

in the barn to keep the pigs in




177

00:07:21,718 --> 00:07:23,528

temporarily so it's just gonna be




178

00:07:23,728 --> 00:07:25,028

temporary that they're in the barn until




179

00:07:25,228 --> 00:07:26,829

we can actually make a pig pin out in




180

00:07:27,028 --> 00:07:28,778

the yard so we're gonna go check out the




181

00:07:28,978 --> 00:07:30,040

pigs this morning well show you what we




182

00:07:30,240 --> 00:07:32,528

got them the little pin we made form in




183

00:07:32,728 --> 00:07:34,149

a barn and we're gonna give them a




184

00:07:34,348 --> 00:07:36,309

little bit of milk replacer so we mixed




185

00:07:36,509 --> 00:07:41,199

up some milk replacer it is since




186

00:07:41,399 --> 00:07:42,309

they're only like three or four weeks




187

00:07:42,509 --> 00:07:45,429

old or they just got wings so this will




188

00:07:45,629 --> 00:07:46,778

help with being weaned and it also




189

00:07:46,978 --> 00:07:49,449

helped with the move coming out here




190

00:07:49,649 --> 00:07:50,980

it's pretty stressful coming to a new




191

00:07:51,180 --> 00:07:54,040

location and so this is the milk




192

00:07:54,240 --> 00:07:56,499

replacer we're using you know milk




193

00:07:56,699 --> 00:07:58,569

it's got some probiotics in it so it




194

00:07:58,769 --> 00:08:00,429

also helped you know with an upset




195

00:08:00,629 --> 00:08:02,949

stomach with the tables or whatever so




196

00:08:03,149 --> 00:08:04,209

we're going to give them a little bit of




197

00:08:04,408 --> 00:08:14,649

that and no animals how's everybody




198

00:08:14,848 --> 00:08:17,209

doing




199

00:08:17,310 --> 00:08:23,199

I could AC all right so the pigs we made




200

00:08:23,399 --> 00:08:25,900

a little pin back here just down from




201

00:08:26,100 --> 00:08:28,449

the new stole that we made it's a little




202

00:08:28,649 --> 00:08:34,679

dark let me open up another door doing




203

00:08:34,879 --> 00:08:46,990

some of this bowl there you go big ones




204

00:08:47,190 --> 00:08:49,400

definitely




205

00:08:55,190 --> 00:09:05,919

I wish the light was better in here yeah




206

00:09:06,120 --> 00:09:09,990

I wish the light lighting was better I




207

00:09:10,190 --> 00:09:14,949

might do something so I had to grab a




208

00:09:15,149 --> 00:09:16,689

couple lights to be able to show you so




209

00:09:16,889 --> 00:09:18,429

next to this new stall that we just




210

00:09:18,629 --> 00:09:21,159

built we threw up like a cattle panel on




211

00:09:21,360 --> 00:09:23,199

the front and then we threw up some




212

00:09:23,399 --> 00:09:25,539

fencing back here and then that was a




213

00:09:25,740 --> 00:09:28,569

makeshift Pigpen so the two pigs there




214

00:09:28,769 --> 00:09:30,609

they're in the back I've already given




215

00:09:30,809 --> 00:09:32,620

their milk replacer they drink it for a




216

00:09:32,820 --> 00:09:35,349

little while but it was too dark to be




217

00:09:35,549 --> 00:09:37,629

able to show you but we got them here in




218

00:09:37,830 --> 00:09:41,709

this pin and basically just got it




219

00:09:41,909 --> 00:09:43,269

loaded up with a bunch of straw in here




220

00:09:43,470 --> 00:09:45,609

for them to lay down in and to root




221

00:09:45,809 --> 00:09:48,459

through but this is just this is just




222

00:09:48,659 --> 00:09:52,179

temporary until we get a pigpen actually




223

00:09:52,379 --> 00:09:55,059

built outside and hopefully we'll get




224

00:09:55,259 --> 00:09:57,159

one built here in a few days because




225

00:09:57,360 --> 00:09:59,799

these pigs are kind of messy they like




226

00:10:00,000 --> 00:10:02,199

to spill the water so we got water all




227

00:10:02,399 --> 00:10:04,419

over the ground in here from them




228

00:10:04,620 --> 00:10:06,729

spilling their water so we don't want to




229

00:10:06,929 --> 00:10:08,799

we don't want to keep them here in the




230

00:10:09,000 --> 00:10:11,500

barn very long so but there they are




231

00:10:11,700 --> 00:10:14,960

there's our new piggies




232

00:10:16,120 --> 00:10:20,459

they're cute right now but I think this




233

00:10:20,659 --> 00:10:24,899

will be fun fun raising pigs thanks for




234

00:10:25,100 --> 00:10:27,000

235

00:10:27,200 --> 00:10:28,289
