What's the general then for overall discussion?

2017-09-21 02:35:49 UTC  

Yeah, anything that doesn't fit in the other channels I suppose.

2017-09-21 02:36:12 UTC  

this is for stuff like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-vuMSoQzYfs

2017-09-21 02:36:45 UTC  

Oh my bad, survival stuff would go in <#359944897676967946> .

2017-09-21 02:36:56 UTC  

i guess it depends on the type of survival

2017-09-21 02:37:03 UTC  

Probably should just merge these.

2017-09-21 02:37:38 UTC  

im worried about too many overlapping conversations

2017-09-21 02:38:04 UTC  

Well, most discussion in one is applicable to the other.

2017-09-21 02:38:17 UTC  

Doesn't really matter either way.

2017-09-21 03:42:25 UTC  

Zennex17, to answer your question from the sig chat: it's a new hobby for me and I haven't harvested anything yet. But I think that lettuce in the pic is about ready and it's been ~3 weeks since the seeds sprouted from the rockwool.

Anyone know anything about bovines?

2017-09-21 18:21:44 UTC  

Anyone have any experience with family milk cows, on the topic of self-sufficiency?

2017-09-21 21:14:37 UTC  

Not much, I knew some folks that had a milk cow. They also had a couple goats and said that the goats ended up producing more milk for their size than the cow.

2017-09-21 21:22:16 UTC  

It depends on the cow, cow's age and feed. Personaly I perfer more animals because it minimizes the chance of catastophry. http://www.backwoodshome.com/bovine-basics-for-beginners/
P.S. did you know that there are dairy sheep breeds.

2017-09-21 21:35:21 UTC

2017-09-21 21:35:21 UTC

2017-09-21 21:36:58 UTC  

Sheep herding would give the ladies plenty of work and generate a nice income for the community

2017-09-21 21:37:04 UTC  

yeah

2017-09-21 21:37:15 UTC
