Pig Farming – Indoors Or Out?

Pig Farming – Indoors Or Out?

Although there are as many systems of pig production as there are individual farms, these can be divided into two major types: indoor or outdoor pig production.

Indoor pigs farms feature herds of pigs kept in a relatively small, closely controlled area, usually with some form of climate control, often with liquid feeding systems, and (increasingly) ‘high health”. These systems are often referred to as factory’ or ‘intensive’ production.

Outdoor pigs feature breeding pigs (sows and litters) being kept on free-draining arable fields for one or two years per site, using ‘arks’ and electric fencing. More than a third of the UK herd are now being kept this way, with an increasing number of pigs being raised to slaughter weight outdoors too.

Both systems have their ‘pros’ and ‘cons’: let’s start by examining the positive features of both.

Indoors you have the advantage of environmental control: piglets can be born and raised at the right temperature; adult animals can be kept cool in the summer and warmer in the winter – they also don’t get the opportunity to get sunburnt; and airflow, especially the occurrence of draughts, so detrimental to pig health, can be controlled. You can also control the feed intake of housed pigs, and are better able to reduce wastage (so important in these days of increasing feed costs) – it’s also easy to install computer controlled feeding methods, such as automatic sow feeders and liquid feeding for fattening stock. Indoor farms tend to be more productive than …

House Flies – Unwanted Winter Guests

House Flies – Unwanted Winter Guests

As the winter nears many insects become scarce. Adult house flies, for example, die off. Thank goodness for that I hear you say. Just remember though, that house fly eggs live on and are to be found in their larval or pupal stage hiding in some dung or in some rubbish somewhere. They may also be laid in warm attics or rafters. Flies are opportunistic and will lay their eggs anywhere that is a food source. For instance, if a mouse of bird has died in your attic, flies will use its rotting corpse as the perfect host for its young.

If the pupae or larvea were outside they would stay dormant through the cold weather. The trouble with lofts though, is that warm air tends to rise and keep them relatively warm. The eggs won’t stay dormant for long. The warmth in the loft will result in continuous development until the young flies are finally hatched and, as is their nature, start to rove around looking for food.

They won’t go far. In the winter, the only source of heat will be the house itself. They may stay trapped in the loft and might die off once all food sources have been exhausted. They may also die off if the house occupants go on vacation and turn off the heating. In many situations however, they will make their way into the living quarters of the house and start to do their nasty work of landing on and sampling various …

Funeral Procession Rules Are Strict

Funeral Procession Rules Are Strict

It’s interesting to note that, regardless of the vehicle code in a particular state, funeral escorts in some cities or counties frequently clash with local police. Resentment may be deep enough that police have even arrested funeral escorts for impersonating a peace officer (in Texas, for example). On the other hand, some communities utilize trained community aides, instead of police officers, for funeral escort duty. This frees up officers to do regular police work.

Regardless of any local tensions, specific laws and rules apply for funeral processions. In California, for example:

  • Funeral processions have the right of way. You must yield to them and never obstruct or interfere in any way.
  • All vehicles traveling in a funeral procession must be accompanied by a motorcycle escort. Usually one escort is assigned for approximately every 10 to 12 vehicles.
  • In addition, funeral stickers (often brightly colored) must be attached to front and/or rear windows of each vehicle. These stickers are issued by the company that was contracted by the mortuary to provide the escort service.
  • Escorts also hold up “Turn On Headlights” signs as the procession leaves the mortuary or place of worship. (In addition to required headlights, some states mandate hazard lights to be flashing.)
  • Treat Funeral Processions with Respect

  • All of us should always treat funeral processions with respect, out of common decency.
  • And yes, the directions of a funeral escort should be obeyed, even when they seem to violate the law. One example of “breaking the law” is when
