Drop the drama, find out who you are and what qualities make you a great catch, and present them to [us]." Thanks and see you online.
After a string of dating disasters and truly forgettable blind dates with friends of friends, I was ready to chuck in the towel, buy a cat and surrender to the fact that I am a forever singleton.
Without a vet, expect to lose even more then 40% of your piglet litters due to disease or infection.
Yah, you could just make a pen out in the sun but, expect to lose some piggies to the heat.
But do not just buy some property anywhere in the province just because some family member has some for sale or lives on it and is willing to care for your piggies. If (and when) you have disagreements, all your investment is at the mercy of being in their hands while you are away.
If they live there, you can’t fire them and there you are.. Next thing you know, piglets are ‘disappearing’ as they make money on the side selling your piglets to neighbors while you shoulder all the expenses.
You’ll also want to ask whether or not there is a well on the property and an electric line. And finally, a septic tank for the caretakers near a Nipa hut for them to live in. We made the mistake with our first caretakers of giving them money to buy the grain. So, hook up with a grainery supply house locally yourself and set up an account with a deposit.
This way you get an itemized bill to monitor how much grain is being bought and you pay them directly at the end of the month.it’s not really stealing to poach some inventory for some extra pesos.Piggies do get sick every so often and need shots so ask around for a decent Vet to stop by once a month and recommend both shots and a purple spray antibiotic for cuts the piggies may get rolling around and scraping on the stalls.They are fed well with clean grain, seen by a vet and kept clean so, I guess they’re pretty happy and comfortable.The new caretakers are working out much better than the previous ones, and that’s made all the difference.Speaking of the neighbors, visit the property and check out which direction the wind carries.
