Spring Vacation – Day 3

Today marked the official beginning of the series “How to raise Pigs using the least amount of cash possible”.  Wednesday’s episode begins with a trip to the local farm store to use our $5.00 coupon on the purchase of some electrical wire fencing tape.  0

One the way home I spotted a plastics manufacturer with some pallets laying around.  We stopped and they were kind enough to let us have them for free.  This brings our total pallet expense to $13.00.


0-2This afternoon we began installing our pallet pig pen inside of the existing chicken yard.  We got the divided sections done for pig dinning hall, pig 1 bedroom, and pig 2 bedroom.



So far we have spent:
$13.00 – Pallets
$39.98 – Water Nipples
$13.98 – Food Bins
$26.95 – Electric Fence Tape

I also cleaned out the hen house – they were very grateful!
