A little bull calf joins the herd this evening.
This little girls arrival this morning, the 8th over the last couple of months will be the last for a while.
She brings the herd numbers up to 27, about the maximum our land can support I think.
Well done to my Brother and Sister in law for there tireless dedication to raising, and careing for these animals.
Proud mother there ...must be nice not having to worry about school fees, clothes, trips to the cinema ...
Just done my first tour of the ranch this morning, all looking very good.
Been over to Surin today to take a look at Sam. Sam is a young Charolais bull that my Sis in law and her Husband have bought to complement, and service their small herd of cattle here in Buriram. He will also be put to work servicing other farmers cows as and when required. He is staying over there with rellies at the moment until his new quarters are completed here
At 500 baht a bar fine ..how many will it take for pay back.
It's 1,000 bht a time up here, so not quite as long
Excavations for the new reservior at CRU Buriram have started.
Lek will be pleased as punch that I am here in Oz, as being an ex excavator operator
She knows that if I where there, I would be jumping up and down telling her they were not doing things correctly. That said I have seen work done by these guys, and it is spot on.
Good progress so far today. I can't knock that.
What size will it be.
Not sure at the moment mate, but I will get SWMBO to put a tape around it once it is finished. Looks like they have made great progress today.
It'll either be mahk, mahk-mahk or mahk-mahk-mahk.
(Same as building a house.)
She is paying, so I don't mind what size it is
End of work, day one.
Is the digging of ponds a self-funding task. Presumably, the excavated dirt is sold off to those needing landfill and trucked away. Does this pay for the digging operation?
I'm looking for the LAO KHAO and Leo.
SWMBO negotiated a deal with this crew whereby they would charge 140bht per lorry load they dug out, this included the price of the excavator. The soil is only being moved to a spot just behind the dig.
This raised area will then be used by MIL to grow veg. We are using our own tractor to level this so no extra costs involved there. At the end of the first day they have moved 127 loads, and she estimates they are a little over half way through the job.
I messaged her, and told her to ensure they had plenty of the above, and to bill me for it on my return.
She assures me this has been done, and they where all very appreciative.
