Re: Where to buy culture to make yoghurt

Hi Aussiemum, I usually order mine through that chain store of homebrewers...trying to think of the name of it. I know there's one in Engadine and quite a few around Sydney. They post out for just what it costs them to post, no overheads. Ah...google "countrybrewer" I think? ah, just check...

Chai Tea Anyone?

Hi,
Does anyone make their own chai tea? I think I might like to do so, and there are too many recipes to choose from on the internet. I was wondering if someone had their own mix that they have tried and testing and not found wanting?
Thanks

On farm kills & butchering

Hi, Try as I might, I can't find the laws and regulations regarding "on farm" kills, and how they are controlled and regulated. I am loathe to ring up the department of health and say "hey...we do this..." Can anybody actually link me to the policy or the legislation which govern...

Re: Hello from a new member

Hi Ozzibeth,
Goodluck with it all. Pretty soon twenty five acres will seem far too small for everything that you want to do! Lots of work though, sometimes I believe hobby farming is harder than doing it full time!
best of luck and there's a wealth of info on here!

Aldi Vacuum sealer and bags on sale Sat 30/6/12

Hi, This Saturday, 30 June 2012, Aldi are selling vacuum sealers for $70 and rolls of channel bags for $15. A bargain on both counts. I've already bought the vacuum sealer (although would dearly love a commercial size one!), but will stock up on the bags which are much more expensive everywhere else...

Re: Foster calf and other farming stuff...

Hi, I hadn't realised I had not updated this thread! So here goes the summary... Spot calved a healthy heifer calf the week before Christmas 2011... great angst ensued when at 17 hours old, at 8pm the calf took off for the cane fields one km up the road and disappeared. We went and got a foster calf...

Re: drench resistant worms in goats

Hi, I haven't read all the posts in this thread, but would second the comment that Panacur is useless, particularly for Barber's Pole Worm (not saying that's what the worms your goat has). What about this...not sure if its for lactating goats or not http://www.farmservices.com.au/home.php?cat=78&...

Re: first gouda

This is what I (almost) like best about this forum...where else could a thread about Gouda, end up discussing Kelpies, with an intermission of Dexters?

Got to go...milking in the morning.. must post some pics of my little herd...

Hi Kerry, Thanks for trying. I've sent you an email so you can hopefully get them to me. Funny how you don't miss something, and then you get a taste of it again (figuratively) and you just can't wait to get back into it! Why don't you have a go at doing a bit of a blurb about making some goat chees...

Hi, We have five strand barb on all our fences, and for the boundary, we have sheep wire attached to it (as we run a small flock of sheep also). Sheep fencing will not keep cows in. The barb is great but not with young calves unless its in top condition with no stretch, or they will go through it ea...
