Well our farm is finally under way, we started last year with meat rabbits farm, we now have 112 breeding does(going for 200)worm bins, chickens, turkeys, quail,pheasents & geese and a summer & winter crops. Our new addition is a baby bull. We should be getting our second in a few days. It finally starting to look like a farm. We hope to turn this all in to full time, country life is what is all about, family hard work and a sense of pride, poor walmart won't be seeing much of us, if only the kids can get use to leaves as toilet paper(lol)

Sounds like you are having fun! I would make that bull a steer asap, unless you plan to use him as breeding stock. It sure doesn't get any easier as they get bigger, and steers are a LOT easier to deal with than bulls. Good luck.

Congrats! Feels good doesn't it!
I remember raising meat rabbits as a kid. We started with one buck, and ten does, in less than six months we had 450 rabbits. Thirty a week were taken for meat.
Talk about kids heaven with all them baby bunnies.....I was constantly hiding my favorites when it was close to D-Day.

Hey Kid, people survived thousands of years without "beauty"paper tho there is no doubt it's creation has given a differant "scents" ta close proximity conditions.

Boy has it been a dream, we always wanted to move to the country, Mississippi from subburbs of new orleans, thats where both sides of the family is from, then we started our on family and it was hard to leave because of the grandparents, hut we finally decided we had to follow our on dreams
it was the best choice we ever made, its the good life, in the country you look out for each other with out being asked, if you grow more then you you need you pass it on and you get ten times in return. The schools are better, family & church are important Nobody seems to need to make more then a buck just a honest living. what a life to have!
