Hey Troy! Thanks for your comment on my blog. It's always nice to know I'm not the only one who feels that way. I was raised to believe it's just an animal and that's life and death...too bad I never followed that advice. I love my girls! Just wanted to let you know, we found the culprit behind the fumes. We were bedding with dry shavings and jypsum- dry wall dust particles. The jypsum had lime in it to help neutralize the bacteria and it worked pretty good. However, we found out it emits some kind of chemical, that when mixed with manure fumes during agitation, it creates a deadly gas. Needless to say, we've stopped using the jypsum...which we think is why we had 6 new mastits cases this morning. We can't win!

Troy, we do not have a mobile phone app. The Ning network has optimized viewing in web browser mode on my iPhone. Not sure what it would look like on a Blackberry. I have my account set up to receive e-mail alerts and click the links to load pages from e-mails.

Hello!
Well, first we had a terrible drough season, but at the end of the rain season (summer) the rain arrived; so our corn field, which had been irrigated before, is still too wet to begin the silage! The corn is already mature. We could harvest only little bit more than the half as corn sileage. The rest will be harvested in 2 weeks (mature corn). We are preparing to the winter crop, triticale, for sileage too, the optimal seeding time here for that is november.
Thanks for asking!

How are you doing there? is it too cold already?

Troy, it is an awesome experience...........I'm glad you liked the first seminar. Larry did his 5 min persuasive speech focused on the Methane Digester. I did mine on Butter-vs-Margerine. Are you going to attend the AgForestry dinner in Skagit County November 4th?

Troy, of course. Do I need to write up something? It will have to wait until after Milk Makers Fest this week - give me a call or stop by the office.

the things just behind me are free stalls, a mexican design that can go up for the work with the sand. i think in my own that this is not a very good idea, because you can work the sand easily without the extra work that represents to pick up all the structure.

where are you located?
In gogle earth you can see our cows! although the picture is old, but you can find our farm.

Hello!
I guess you found Aguascalientes. Great. Of course I'll encourage other dairyman to produce milk in México, but efficiently (I hope it is well written!). The rules for succesful dairying are universal.
We saw how are price went from US$0.45 per kg to US$0.31 per kg; so, many small or inefficient dairy farms will close in 2009. Anyway, we'll keep on fighting!

Yeah but now he can spend more time on the pitch fork and shovel ! Any way it sure is different . So far we like the system the biggest thing is that you farm differently. You end up managing the cows by that I mean they choose the time to get milked not me .I think it was a bigger adjustment for me than the cows

Hey Troy thanks for inviting me on ! I installed a robotic milker 3 months ago I posted some photos and video it was a new camera so the shots are not the best . I think I will now leave my office and go home drive through some big bad snow drifts yuk!
catch you soon
