A Warm Place To Be Today!

This little guy looks very content!  I love how he is sprawled out under the heat lamp, momma close (he actually has a teat in his mouth - nothing like reserving your spot in case you need a little snack) and he is asleep  - now that is how to spend the day when it is 14 degrees outside!

Our farrowing barns are kept at a constant 71 degrees all winter to keep our sows and piglets comfortable.  The heat is electronically controlled with a thermostat.
That is warmer than we keep our house!

  2. Might make it more fun to do chores tonight! Just had to wrestle my dog into the garage for the night. She curls up in her dog house, and I put lots of straw down, but she always has ice where her tail meets her butt. Can't have all that frozen together. She's like a teenager, all pouty, but she will appreciate me in the morning or sometime down the road when she wants to wag her tail!

    Keep safe and warm tonight!
