How old are you talking about and what kind of subjects.
I just ran across one the other day of my parents and grandparents operation. An old
black and white photo from an airplane. Probably took in the 60's. Still had the ear corn cribs. And still had about 1000 pigs on lush alfalfa pasture. The ear corn cribs are long gone. But its ironic that my fall farrowed
pigs were in the same feild this year. Its a corn/soybean/wheat/clover&turnip rotation. Pastured hogs
and crop rotations never went out of style on my grandparents and parents operation. I guess they just
never realised how "innefficient" they really were.
I copied this post to the the SANET because I'm passing this photo along to the American Farmland Trust
for their grassfarmer web page. They are going to do a virtual tour of our pasture hog operation. The photo
goes a long ways to show the forsight my grandparents and parents had towards sustainability. I'm still raising
hogs the same way 30-40 years later. I'll let everybody know when the site is up and running.
My dad gets a real kick out of all this talk about alternative hog production. He still believes alternative
hog production is confinement production!
