Building shelters are so valuable, we are so thankful that Tim kindly let us use a former garden shed close to the house for shelter for our future animals. We get to use space in the barn as well for storage of our garden tools and supplies. In a few days we are also getting a delivery of bailage and hay from a close farmer in the next town over that we also get to store in the barn safely away from any moisture for our goats that we plan on getting soon. Our plan with the bailagee is an idea that we are experimenting with from the internet, our goal with it is to be able to save money on hay which is so expensive in New Hampshire, while nurturing our animals with different forms of nutrition. The idea is to stuff heavy duty black construction bags with the baialge and then stuck the air from the bag with a powerful vacuum that will then make it completely air tight since baylage is only usually used on big scale farms that are feeding tons of animals because it goes bad within a week’s time since it’s fermented.
