You know the old saying...Happy as a pig eating brewery grain! 😉🐷
.
Most of the spent grain we pick up from @Brieuxcarre and @secondlinebrew goes to our egg laying flock, but when we moved these three pregnant gilts into their farrowing (maternity) paddock, we loaded them up with it. And they were quite pleased, needless to say!
.
Some studies show spent brewery grain has as much as 30% protein! And the pigs and chickens love its funky, malty goodness. There’s really no alcohol content (some people have asked if they get tipsy) because the grain isn’t part of the actual fermentation cycle — the beer brewing process involves basically “washing” and agitating the grain with hot water to get the sugars out and then with that liquid, the wort, they add the yeast to begin the fermentation process. So the grain can start to ferment, in theory, from naturally occurring yeast, but it’s more like the animals are eating malted oatmeal! 👌 #themoreyouknow

“You talking to me?”
.
This reminds of this face my dad makes when he “plays dumb” in response to a question. My dad is even on Instagram now, so he (and anyone who knows him!) should know exactly what I’m talking about. 😂😂
.
A little joking this morning is necessary because it’s going to rain all day and after the wet wet fall we’ve had, it’s basically the last thing we need. Have I mentioned recently that Louisiana gets more annual rainfall than every state but Hawaii?? 💦😬💧

The finisher pigs had a great view of the sunrise this morning! (And I love this new camera!)
.
We are finishing up some pig rearranging this morning and then headed to Reno for the National Grazing Lands Coalition Conference tomorrow through Wednesday! Ready to talk pasture, soil health, grazing, direct marketing, etc! 🤗👍

New phone, who dis?
.
On Tuesday when we were trying to load up the pregnant sows to move them to their farrowing (maternity) paddocks, my phone fell out of my pocket and I didn’t notice it until an hour ish later.
.
Retraced my steps and found it smashed with these guys. It was over 3.5 years old, so definitely time for an upgrade anyway. It went out in a pretty epic way — getting stepped on and nibbled on by piggies! 🤷‍♀️😆
.
So I think it’s only appropriate that I test out the new camera on this same group! This guy even stuck his little tongue out in the photo for me. 😉

Our pigs got some pumpkin pie! They aren’t sure about food that isn’t pellets. Nice to see them be pigs. I added a video to our IGTV if you want to see them eating it.

Thanks lex for coming over and breaking in your new boots 😂 ❤️ these are the last of the butcher photos but again don't scroll if you don't want to see SLAUGHTER PHOTOS. These are the mulefoot pigs we did. Very very different than the Berkshire from last year!

DO NOT GO THROUGH PHOTOS IF YOU DONT WANT TO SEE BUTCHER PHOTOS!!
We spent the weekend butchering, then cutting and wrapping our two pigs. It was a great weekend and I can't thank my family enough for all the help I couldn't do it without them! ❤️ @alexis.fern @whiskeywast3d

Before getting our American Guinea Hogs we had never had pigs before. We thought starting with a smaller breed would be a good learning experience for us. But now, every day gets harder to see them as bacon 😂  But alas, the love for real food is very strong, so we are still excited for ham next year. ✨🐖🍂✨

Looks like these chubs gorged themselves on mama’s milk for Thanksgiving! 😂
.
Six isn’t quite the ideal litter size we’d like to see from our sows, but I will say when she only has six to take care of, they get really fat, really fast! They’ll be four weeks tomorrow.

Our hearts are still heavy on the homestead. We miss our Karma girl so. Chris is a “work through the grief” kinda guy. Any one surprised by that? I need distractions. Tv shows and movies work the best for me. Otherwise I dwell and cry. I have a hard time being left alone with my thoughts. I have only cried six times today. Progress 
There is a void where Karma used to be. Literally really. Her bed used to be in the way but now it’s gone. I had so much free time today. She could have seizures and needed her CBD regularly. I spent so much of my time taking care of her. I didn’t know what to do with her empty bowl 
But there are other heartbeats to worry about and Chris did a great job with the new pig pen!
