Kiss Surprises Goodbye!

Sarah Collins - Wednesday, February 12, 2014

You know the one thing I dislike the most about internal worms in my animals? It's surprises. Your know, those stomach-dropping, oh no, I-can't-handle-this-right-now kind of surprise? Yep... those nasty ones. Read more

Intensive Farming Systems: Are they a viable option for Australian sheep and goat production?

Sarah Collins - Sunday, July 07, 2013

I have just returned from a short period of work experience in a large piggery. Every week without fail over 400 tiny, squealing piglets are brought into the world and these very quickly transform into mischievous weaners. Every step of the production process is precisely managed to ensure optimal growth and performance. In 20 weeks, the little piglets have developed into a marketable animal and the methods are so finely tuned that the weight difference between pigs in the group is within 2kgs. Everything works like clockwork. There are a certain amount of days allocated to every aspect; pregnancy, lactation, re-mating, growth, even birthing is induced to fit in with this ‘calendar’ of events. Read more

Sydney Royal Easter Show

Sarah Collins - Tuesday, April 23, 2013

Months ago, I agreed to help my good friend, Bert Cairns (Armadown Stud) of Proston show his Boer Goats at the Sydney Royal Easter Show.  I assisted another stud last year so, I should have been aware of what I was getting myself into!  A fourteen hour (plus) drive each way and long days doesn’t sound too bad if you say it quickly! Read more
