This weeks episode shares our issues with a trio of cottontail rabbits that have been terrorizing our landscape and what we did to solve the issue. We also complain about the snow and the cold on the farm.... because... it feels good to complain. We quickly throw in a mention of wood shavings and the chicken coop as well.
Then in the Veggie Patch we talk about some of the notable varieties of seeds that we purchased this year and where we got them from.
Finally in a the prototype hunting / fishing / land management / rural lifestyle segment... Farmer Andy talks a bit about a new part discovery that lets you move a scope and rings between different rifles a lot easier!

The updates this week are short as the cold weather has mostly kept the farming inside. It's also hard to do much with over 3 feet (that's a meter for our international listeners) of snow on the ground. We do take some time ot tell the story of Farmer Andy and his boxed wine tho!
In this episodes Farm U we talk about the hard and factual science behind vaccines and the debate about vaccination. We look at the mechanisms of the immune system and the research behind the methodology. Farmer Andy and Dr. Kelli have a round table discussion clarifying the real science of vaccines.
Finally we wind up on the front porch to share some of our closing opinions about the vaccine "debate" that's out there from our perspective.

This weeks updates include our struggles with a new gilt and artificial insemination this winter. We also talk about the other challenges of the deep snow and our chickens.
We then look forward to warmer days in the Veggie Patch segment where we talk about the process we go through ordering seeds for the vegetable garden. Who we have ordered seeds from before and what we look for in a seed company.
