Trip to Larchfield

So, today we went over to Larchfield to look at their piggies. After a reasonably long drive, which involved getting ever so slightly lost, we arrived at their shop/coffee bar. There was some negotiations with the tea lady, who wanted to give us 1 tiny pot of tea for 4 cups, we had our tea break.
Then it was off to look at the piggies. They were down an ever so slightly muddy track about a kilometre. There were a number of pens, made up of electric fence and pig house thingies, with sows, piglets and a big boar.
Sadly the camera I brought with me, my dive camera, broke... Well, for some reason it refuses to focus... Sometimes it says its focused, and isn't and sometimes it says it can't focus.... Weird.. So I didn't manage to get any pictures of the piggies.
Larchfield is a little bit of a strange place. Some of the buildings look very Camphill, but the place doesn't feel like Botton at all... There are no coworkers anymore, everyone working there is an employee, so I think there isn't so much of an impulse to help out above and beyond as it were.
The farmer, or one of them, called Dave, also an employee said he works so much overtime, as he's running a farm, but it's all unpaid.
Was a strange experience, and hopefully not a vision of a future in Botton.

It's just my luck

So, Falcon Far, has increased back up to 2 full time farmers, and we gained an additional part time coworker, who can share the weekends with me, or at least that's the intention.
Dispite that, I've managed 2 whole days under the new system before ending up with a crazy high temperature... Great!
So it's back to bed for me.

Falcon Farm

So, I thought I'd post some pictures of my animals on Falcon. First of all we have some beef cows, they're Aberdeen Angus cows.
Then we've got piggies. We've got a mixture of Saddleback pigs, Gloucester Old Spot, and Tamworths.
We've got a bunch of sheep and some geese as well.
In the tea break room we've got an animal that isn't quite one of the stock... He or she (I'm not sure...) is called Whisky, and it's a cat.

Geese chase the sheep :)

The other day I moved half my lambs, the other half decided that they were going to be silly and not come into the field.
So in the end I just left the other half in the field until I have some more people.

The lambs I managed to move are in with the geese, and they're not exactly best of friends... It's not as bad as when you put geese with cows (the cows just straight up kill them).
So, I fed the sheep, and the geese came over and got interested... They then proceeded to chase the occasional sheep... Some of the sheep weren't having any of it, but some got a little scared.

Bale Spike for a tractor

Another mod for Farming Simulator 2013. This is a bale spike that can be attached to the link arms. Allows you to transport 2 bales at once… Makes moving bales from the field a little bit easier without having to load the blue trailer.
There is a slight bug at the moment that it’s quite difficult to get the bales off the spikes… But if you’re just selling them, its not so much of an issue.
Fun stuff.

Front Loader Implement Carrier

This is a tool that allows implements to be attached to the front loader. Why might this be useful you may ask? Well, if you want to load up the blue trailer for example, with a seeder, a fertilizer and a mower (I'm sure there are reasons!) you can pop this baby on, attach the implement to it and drop it on the trailer.
You can even do silly things like this Open-mouthed smile

Back in action...pretty much

So, after a few days of being off ill, I'm pretty much back in action. It was an interesting few days, running a farm on your own while you're ill is not the easiest thing to do... With a little help though, we got there in the end.
One of my villagers has been complaining all week about a silage bale we brought down for feeding. It was a left over from last year, and was a bit rotten... Every day, at least once, he tells me how it is too rotten and that I should get another one. Ah well, we finally fed it all now, to some rather upset cows, and got down a slightly nicer quality bale.
The piggies have been behaving themselves, mostly. The little ones that were bought in from outside still do not seem to be growing much at all... Slightly disconcerting. They also keep squeezing through their feeding trough and then running around the farm yard... Ah, piglets will be piglets...
