00:00:00,030 --> 00:00:01,600

good morning everybody today for this




2

00:00:01,800 --> 00:00:03,579

video I'm gonna just show you everything




3

00:00:03,779 --> 00:00:06,809

I do today that is homestead work




4

00:00:07,009 --> 00:00:17,919

starting now the boys are fertilizing




5

00:00:18,118 --> 00:00:20,409

these greens with fish fertilizer and




6

00:00:20,609 --> 00:00:22,210

they're just pouring it down each line




7

00:00:22,410 --> 00:00:24,159

with a pretty concentrated fish




8

00:00:24,359 --> 00:00:26,169

fertilizer and then we'll water this bed




9

00:00:26,368 --> 00:00:30,589

when we're done pull out those plants




10

00:00:31,989 --> 00:00:52,498

[Music]




11

00:00:52,698 --> 00:00:54,779

as much as possible it's planning dirt




12

00:00:54,979 --> 00:00:57,669

not in the newer




13

00:00:57,869 --> 00:01:00,498

and then just make sure that if you have




14

00:01:00,698 --> 00:01:01,849

locked the brakes make sure they get to




15

00:01:02,049 --> 00:01:03,419

spread out




16

00:01:03,619 --> 00:01:06,119

is that we want oil around them as much




17

00:01:06,319 --> 00:01:10,019

as all the raspberries are in and two




18

00:01:10,219 --> 00:01:12,750

other berry plants raspberries elder




19

00:01:12,950 --> 00:01:14,369

various at the bottom justice is




20

00:01:14,569 --> 00:01:15,689

watering them and then it's breakfast




21

00:01:15,890 --> 00:01:17,429

time you got the dirt baby and we're




22

00:01:17,629 --> 00:01:19,528

gonna go eat breakfast we're dirt baby




23

00:01:19,728 --> 00:01:21,450

we're checking the cow for subclinical




24

00:01:21,650 --> 00:01:24,689

mastitis so I've got these four jars to




25

00:01:24,890 --> 00:01:27,569

take samples from four quarters to the




26

00:01:27,769 --> 00:01:30,750

barn to milk after chasing a goat that




27

00:01:30,950 --> 00:01:45,079

was out here's my right back left back




28

00:01:45,280 --> 00:01:52,558

her left front and her right front now




29

00:01:52,759 --> 00:01:53,969

we'll just finish smoking out her




30

00:01:54,170 --> 00:01:54,939

backside




31

00:01:55,140 --> 00:02:03,540

[Music]




32

00:02:17,360 --> 00:02:25,810

[Music]




33

00:02:29,889 --> 00:02:46,920

more raspberry plants came in to mail we




34

00:02:47,120 --> 00:02:50,300

have four Triple Crowns blackberries




35

00:02:50,500 --> 00:02:55,140

three black Jim blackberries I can't




36

00:02:55,340 --> 00:02:57,989

pronounce these we watch cheetah




37

00:02:58,188 --> 00:03:02,969

blackberries six double gold raspberries




38

00:03:03,169 --> 00:03:07,230

and four characters these plants we will




39

00:03:07,430 --> 00:03:08,700

not be planting today they have to be




40

00:03:08,900 --> 00:03:10,980

hardened off which means introduced




41

00:03:11,180 --> 00:03:12,509

slowly to direct sunlight they've




42

00:03:12,709 --> 00:03:14,129

probably been grown in a greenhouse or




43

00:03:14,329 --> 00:03:16,289

under State cloth and you can kill them




44

00:03:16,489 --> 00:03:17,310

if you just put them straight out in the




45

00:03:17,509 --> 00:03:19,050

Sun so we'll let them get about two or




46

00:03:19,250 --> 00:03:21,269

three hours of Sun today and each day




47

00:03:21,468 --> 00:03:24,118

for the next couple days and then we'll




48

00:03:24,318 --> 00:03:25,980

plan them out next it's time for a quick




49

00:03:26,180 --> 00:03:27,989

herbal orientation for this guy who




50

00:03:28,188 --> 00:03:30,330

might be sent to run herb errands for




51

00:03:30,530 --> 00:03:33,149

cooking so you know green onions right




52

00:03:33,348 --> 00:03:36,659

pay attention now okay ready cilantro




53

00:03:36,859 --> 00:03:38,789

this one's dill if she wants to do




54

00:03:38,989 --> 00:03:40,368

that's what she wants this is chives




55

00:03:40,568 --> 00:03:42,539

it's kind of like onions but it's like




56

00:03:42,739 --> 00:03:45,929

tiny in this oregano this is called




57

00:03:46,128 --> 00:03:49,890

oregano this is called time this one is




58

00:03:50,090 --> 00:03:54,439

called sage this one is summer savory




59

00:03:54,639 --> 00:03:56,939

she wanted oregano when we send you out




60

00:03:57,139 --> 00:03:59,759

to get herbs take scissors and just clip




61

00:03:59,959 --> 00:04:01,020

off little pieces like that




62

00:04:01,219 --> 00:04:08,279

okay we're using this portable somatic




63

00:04:08,479 --> 00:04:11,129

cell count kit to detect subclinical




64

00:04:11,329 --> 00:04:12,779

mastitis now I didn't tell you why we're




65

00:04:12,979 --> 00:04:15,719

doing this we're doing this because when




66

00:04:15,919 --> 00:04:18,718

we got Alice the milk cow her milk at




67

00:04:18,918 --> 00:04:22,110

least from back quarters tasted salty




68

00:04:22,310 --> 00:04:24,600

salty tasting milk can be a sign of




69

00:04:24,800 --> 00:04:26,699

mastitis we've also been reading about




70

00:04:26,899 --> 00:04:29,040

it and there's a lot of other possible




71

00:04:29,240 --> 00:04:30,449

reasons there's actually a ton of people




72

00:04:30,649 --> 00:04:33,019

right now on all the online cow boards




73

00:04:33,218 --> 00:04:35,189

posting about their salty tasting milk




74

00:04:35,389 --> 00:04:37,110

we're gonna do this test though this may




75

00:04:37,310 --> 00:04:39,809

help us know if she actually




76

00:04:40,009 --> 00:04:41,910

besides the concern would be that she




77

00:04:42,110 --> 00:04:43,588

might be like in an early stage of




78

00:04:43,788 --> 00:04:47,100

mastitis she actually her milk looks




79

00:04:47,300 --> 00:04:50,519

great and her udder looks fine so a lot




80

00:04:50,718 --> 00:04:53,429

is reassuring and we're gonna refer back




81

00:04:53,629 --> 00:04:55,709

to our instructions that Wilders eating




82

00:04:55,908 --> 00:04:59,968

four drops in milk okay we're okay no we




83

00:05:00,168 --> 00:05:02,549

only need four drops of milk on each one




84

00:05:02,749 --> 00:05:07,169

of these three four we're gonna rinse




85

00:05:07,369 --> 00:05:09,629

that out and then four drops of




86

00:05:09,829 --> 00:05:13,829

developer on each trip we've got to wait




87

00:05:14,028 --> 00:05:15,359

five minutes so while we're waiting I'm




88

00:05:15,559 --> 00:05:17,489

gonna taste all these milks I'm just




89

00:05:17,689 --> 00:05:31,170

tasting the left-back salty you're right




90

00:05:31,370 --> 00:05:34,538

back tastes really good to me




91

00:05:34,749 --> 00:05:37,649

right front tastes good left front




92

00:05:37,848 --> 00:05:38,879

tastes good they all taste good at the




93

00:05:39,079 --> 00:05:40,439

left back though tastes bad here's the




94

00:05:40,639 --> 00:05:43,139

test results left front is white right




95

00:05:43,338 --> 00:05:47,218

front right back and then here is the




96

00:05:47,418 --> 00:05:49,679

left back and what we're supposed to do




97

00:05:49,879 --> 00:05:52,649

is compare the color to this test strip




98

00:05:52,848 --> 00:05:54,569

honestly it's closest to this one which




99

00:05:54,769 --> 00:06:02,639

is 1500 cells times a thousand from Noli




100

00:06:02,838 --> 00:06:04,379

so it looks like she may have mastitis




101

00:06:04,579 --> 00:06:06,899

in her left back quarter this too this




102

00:06:07,098 --> 00:06:08,670

isn't a definitive diagnostic test




103

00:06:08,870 --> 00:06:10,468

format size but it looks like she




104

00:06:10,668 --> 00:06:14,189

probably does so we have some learning




105

00:06:14,389 --> 00:06:16,528

to do about treating mastitis we're




106

00:06:16,728 --> 00:06:18,059

doing everything right now we're milking




107

00:06:18,259 --> 00:06:19,920

her out in that back left quarter




108

00:06:20,120 --> 00:06:22,559

especially and her milk actually looks




109

00:06:22,759 --> 00:06:24,329

good it's not really it's not chunky or




110

00:06:24,528 --> 00:06:27,430

gloppy or anything




111

00:06:29,060 --> 00:06:31,960

this is by far my least favorite thing




112

00:06:32,160 --> 00:06:34,360

that we do around here I'm gonna dis bud




113

00:06:34,560 --> 00:06:37,449

all the goats there's a lot of reasons




114

00:06:37,649 --> 00:06:41,430

we do this I do think that it's not




115

00:06:41,629 --> 00:06:43,509

necessary if you're planning on keeping




116

00:06:43,709 --> 00:06:46,420

a goat but most people buying goats




117

00:06:46,620 --> 00:06:49,540

expect it and it would be a big turn-off




118

00:06:49,740 --> 00:06:52,000

to many people but we're going to knock




119

00:06:52,199 --> 00:06:53,590

it out really quick and let these babies




120

00:06:53,790 --> 00:06:57,830

go back to their mum




121

00:07:01,589 --> 00:07:03,559

all right you're done let's get you back




122

00:07:03,759 --> 00:07:07,520

to mommy now it's lucky to Luckys turn




123

00:07:07,720 --> 00:07:09,910

poor little lady sorry girl




124

00:07:10,110 --> 00:07:12,910

and that was Molly's turn sorry lady




125

00:07:13,110 --> 00:07:18,079

alright she's done these babies they're




126

00:07:18,279 --> 00:07:19,278

not gonna probably let me get close




127

00:07:19,478 --> 00:07:21,468

they're gonna say we remember what you




128

00:07:21,668 --> 00:07:23,960

just did to us hey guys




129

00:07:24,160 --> 00:07:28,929

a little burnt heads you guys are cute




130

00:07:29,129 --> 00:07:31,939

and that should be the lastest Budig I




131

00:07:32,139 --> 00:07:35,689

have to do this year she that calf is




132

00:07:35,889 --> 00:07:37,850

polled and we don't have a name for yet




133

00:07:38,050 --> 00:07:40,338

that calf and this guy you can see his




134

00:07:40,538 --> 00:07:42,290

horns I'm gonna let his horns grow




135

00:07:42,490 --> 00:07:44,959

though I'll tell you why because he's




136

00:07:45,158 --> 00:07:46,730

gonna be beefed within a year he's a




137

00:07:46,930 --> 00:07:48,350

good size two month old calf he's gonna




138

00:07:48,550 --> 00:07:50,540

be beefed within a year we're not we




139

00:07:50,740 --> 00:07:53,149

don't have to sell him yeah I just don't




140

00:07:53,348 --> 00:07:54,588

think it's gonna be a problem so he'll




141

00:07:54,788 --> 00:07:56,329

have some little horns by the time we




142

00:07:56,528 --> 00:07:57,739

eat but Sherman you can probably hear




143

00:07:57,939 --> 00:07:59,359

Breanna is mowing down here and you




144

00:07:59,559 --> 00:08:00,739

might say why aren't you mowing you're




145

00:08:00,939 --> 00:08:03,439

the man between us that's the more




146

00:08:03,639 --> 00:08:05,838

favorable job rather than we're doing




147

00:08:06,038 --> 00:08:07,910

work with this guy in your back I love




148

00:08:08,110 --> 00:08:09,829

wearing this guy but it just makes it




149

00:08:10,028 --> 00:08:12,619

hard to do work and so that is the job




150

00:08:12,819 --> 00:08:14,509

that both of us wanted she's doing it




151

00:08:14,709 --> 00:08:17,749

00:09:16,958 --> 00:09:19,188

fence post for rotational grazing we've




177

00:09:19,389 --> 00:09:21,559

been wanting to actually rotationally




178

00:09:21,759 --> 00:09:24,289

graze our pasture forever and we're just




179

00:09:24,490 --> 00:09:25,519

now getting the equipment where it's




180

00:09:25,720 --> 00:09:29,129

actually feasible to do it




181

00:09:42,698 --> 00:09:44,459
