After experimenting all spring long on my cow fencing setup today I am back at the fencing building a new paddock.
I have been building this cow pasture fencing very slowly, one paddock at a time. This is very much on purpose.
I have learned that when you are new to a farm or farming in general often times what you think is going to work doesn’t.
There are things that you get surprised by and things you get wrong.
If you build your farm too quickly, only to learn that you were wrong about how you design was going to work, it is a waste.
Time, money and energy are all things that are all in finite quantities and should NOT be WASTED.
Instead of building this farm up as quickly as I can, I am doing small experiments, small batches of animals, small temporary fencing designs, and small changes and upgrades in infrastructure.
This slow but steady approach is assuring that we never spend too much time, money or energy on the wrong idea.
