Did You Know?

If you haven't "liked" us on fb, do so today. You don't want to miss out on up to the minute farm happenings, interesting farm facts, contest for free farm visits and more.

Here is a sampling of some recent post that I think you'll find interesting.

Turkeys have great hearing with no external ears but rather holes on the side of their head.

Rabbits are born hairless and blind. Their eyes do not open until they are 10-14 days old.
Since ducklings are not born with a functional oil gland the mother duck will spread her own oil on her ducklings so that they can safely swim right away without getting waterlogged.
The average cow produces 6-7 gallons of milk per day! A cow that is milking eats about 100 pounds each day of feed. -Midwest Dairy Association
Pigs are some of the cleanest animals refusing to excrete anywhere near their living or eating areas when given a choice.
