            BREEZY HILL FARM WEEKLY UPDATE


  • We are about to run out of guineas.  We have two hens left and both are laying.  We have collected for about a month and have two chickens hens setting.  We also have about twenty in our incubator and the two guinea hens are still laying.  We will let them set and maybe we will have our numbers back.  
  • The raised beds are the answer, especially when one has a very wet spring.  This spring would have been a disaster in a garden.  It's amazing how much can be raised in a 4 x 8 raised bed.  We have about four that size.  We use drip irrigation.  Haven't needed it this spring yet.
  • The ground beef list is filling, and I have a couple of people on the Dirt Hog list.  You should see our pastures this spring.  With so much rain, the grasses are waist deep.  We are  moving the cattle much more frequently that we did last year.  I sprayed some thistles this afternoon; took advantage of some sun and no rain.
  • We had a brisket last week and wow, it was excellent.  On our next ground beef  day we will again be taking orders for briskets and roasts.

From Chapter 5: Insects

A properly balanced soil will have sufficient quantities of organically active carbon — humus — which helps hold nitrogen in the ammoniacal form. In soils lacking this active carbon content, the soil will give up this ammoniacal nitrogen to bacterial conversion into nitrates or directly to the atmosphere in gaseous form. During the process of ammoniacal nitrogen leaving the soil, it passes by the plant and can act as an amplifier of the infrared signal coming from the plant. Whereas the plant may have been initially broadcasting the signal, “I’m not balanced nutritionally,” the signal now reads, “Come and feed on me!”

Dr. Reams taught that most insects do not attack healthy plants. His whole approach to plant fertility and insect control capitalized on supplying the soil balanced forms of plant food which, in turn, maximized plant health. Insects look for signals coming from unhealthy plants and seldom attack healthy ones. Insects willingly eat weeds and will return to that practice in fields with healthy crops and soils and unhealthy (low brix) weeds. The attacking of weeds by insects is one of the signs to look for in observing your progress toward sustainable agriculture.

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Worldwide, more than 40 percent of insect species are threatened with extinction in the next few decades

  • Overall, the total mass of insects is said to be falling by a “shocking” 2.5 percent a year; if this rate continues unchecked, insects could disappear within 100 years

  • Habitat loss due to land converted to intensive agriculture, as well as urbanization, are major threats to insects

  • The next most significant contributor to insect declines is pollution, primarily that from synthetic pesticides and fertilizers

  • The best course of action to reduce the harm industrial agriculture is having on insects is to support organic, grass fed farms that are not relying on synthetic chemicals and other intensive agriculture practices



https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2019/02/26/insect-population-decline.aspx?utm_source=dnl&utm_medium=email&utm_content=art2&utm_campaign=20190226Z1_UCM&et_cid=DM270406&et_rid=554848540


**********************************************************************

For instance, between 2008 and 2013, wild bees declined 23 percent in the U.S., particularly in the Midwest, Great Plains and the Mississippi valley, where grain production, primarily corn for biofuel, nearly doubled during the same period.4 Further, according to the Environmental Working Group (EWG), more than 8 million acres of grassland and wetlands have been converted to corn from 2008 to 2011.5

Overall, since the U.S. government began requiring ethanol in fuel in 2007, more than 1.2 million acres of grassland have been lost to corn (and soy) crops.6 Along with direct loss of habitat, agricultural intensification also involves other practices that are damaging to insects, namely:

  • Stream channelization

  • Draining of wetlands

  • Modification of floodplains

  • Removal of canopy cover near rivers and streams

  • Loss of soil and nutrients

Monocrops Cannot Support Biodiverse Insect Populations

At one time, all food was grown organically in concert with nature and surrounding ecosystems



Even as most of the world works to reduce emissions, new studies confirm that it will be impossible to stop climate change without changing agriculture. Soil degradation is slowly turning a third of the world into desert. At this rate, fertile soil will be depleted in 60 years.

What exactly does soil have to do with climate change? In the atmosphere, too much carbon overheats the climate. But in the ground, carbon is useful.

Loss of topsoil releases carbon into the air. Modern petroleum-fueled agriculture, beginning around 1930, has released 50 to 70 percent of soil’s carbon into the atmosphere. In a report last year, the U.N. warned that the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere increased at record speed to hit a level not seen for more than 3 million years.

            BREEZY HILL FARM WEEKLY UPDATE


  • Fed my next to the last bale of hay today.  I have one more and it will be fed after this week's forecasted rains.  We had just enough, even though we had that very dry weather last fall, and didn't have much of a fall hay crop.  
  • We have one more pasture to renovate and seed and that will be done for the year.
  • Debra made a peach cobbler for dinner today.  It was excellent, lots of peaches.  It brought back memories of my battle this past summer with the Japanese beetles.  That was horrible.  Lost a whole tree of peaches.  The orchard looks great this year.  Haven't had any threats of a late frost.  I still need to do a little pruning.
  • We are enjoying fresh asparagus and greens from our garden.  Sure is nice to stay out of the grocery store.  Spring is a great time.  Not so hot, and everything is green, except for my neighbors' bare soil.  It's still brown and will only be green for a few months.  Maybe someday the USDA will pay half the cost of cover crops to improve the biology of the soil.
  • We are fighting in Jefferson City  against state control over local control .  Our local senator says he travels the roads from his home to Jeff and sees how "farmers" are supplying our food and taking care of their farms.  He must have found roads that I have yet to travel.  I usually find the less traveled roads, and my experience is quite different.  I don't see any food that makes it to my table.  Now if "farmers" were to start raising green beans, pinto beans, lima beans, speckled butter beans and leave soybeans in the bag.  Some of the corn (40%) and much of the soybean crop feed our cars and CAFOs .  Many of you have done your own research into the problems that result from confined feeding of animals.
  • I am pretty sure if we get the rain that is forecast this week, we will have another liquid dust storm.  Our local streams and rivers will be just as brown as the ever present bare soils.

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Emulsifiers in processed foods could be wreaking havoc on the microbes in your intestines, leading to metabolic problems and even affecting your brain

  • Because your gut and brain communicate via your gut-brain axis, altering microbes in your gut can influence anxiety and behavior, leading researchers to speculate that consuming emulsifiers may also influence mental health and behavior

  • A study confirmed that exposure to emulsifiers led to chronic intestinal inflammation, obesity and altered gut microbiota composition in mice

  • Emulsifiers trigger chronic, low-grade inflammation in your body, to which depression is strongly linked

  • The best way to avoid emulsifiers in your diet is to avoid processed foods and eat real, whole foods instead.

  • I got a call from one of my Dirt Hog farmers.  If you're interested let me know if you want a whole or half.  They will be processed at Gilbert's.  
  • Calving continues and thankfully our timing has been great.  We even dodged forecasted snow this morning.  Looks like the weather will be great for the remaining calves.  Having calves in Jan and Feb just makes no sense.
  • The ground beef list is growing.  We will be delivering freezer beef orders this week.  We have five to deliver to eleven different customers.  One will be to Warsaw. Mo.  That's a first.  We will stop by Morgan County Seeds on the way home to stock up on garden supplies.  
  • How many of you have thought about that horse video I included last week?  If that were my horse, back in the day, it would have taken off for the barn.   I would have run away from that cow and walked home.  How did they train that horse???
  • Wow, the martin houses are full.  I have a few more gourds and I guess I'll add them later.

  • Ever wonder how the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) could continue to support the use of glyphosate—even after 17 of the world’s best scientists at the World Health Organization (WHO) concluded that the key active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup weedkiller is a “probable human carcinogen”?

new study published this week in Environmental Sciences Europe answers that question. As it turns out, the EPA based its conclusions on unpublished industry studies—99 percent of which found that glyphosate doesn’t damage your DNA.

The scientists at WHO’s International Agency on Cancer Research (IARC), on the other hand, relied on non-industry, published, peer-reviewed studies—and 74 percent of those found that glyphosate does damage DNA.

Gee, wonder how that happened? Could Monsanto lobbyists have had something to do with which studies the EPA used, and which ones it ignored?



Make sure you read the entire article. This is an amazing interview. https://www.ecofarmingdaily.com/rethinking-pandoras-potatoes/


*****************************************************************

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Most growing environmental and health problems can be traced back to modern food production, including malnutrition, promotion of foodborne illnesses and drug-resistant bacterial infections, diminishing water supplies, and air, soil and water pollution

  • The answer to all of these problems hinges on the widespread implementation of regenerative agriculture and biodynamic farming

  • Reasons to support regenerative agriculture include the fact that it promotes optimal nutrition and health, rebuilds topsoil, protects water sources and minimizes irrigation, prevents environmental pollution and restores damaged ecosystems

  • Food from animals raised on regenerative farms also minimize the risks of foodborne illnesses and drug-resistant diseases

  • Certifications to look for, denoting the highest quality foods grown according to regenerative principles, include Demeter (biodynamic certification) and the American Grassfed Association (AGA) certification

Tests reveal the nutrient content of foods has dramatically declined since the introduction of mechanized farming in 1925. As just one example, research by August Dunning, chief science officer and co-owner of Eco Organics, reveals that to receive the amount of iron you used to get from one apple in 1950, by 1998 you had to eat 26 apples; today you have to eat 36, and this is a direct consequence of industrial farming techniques and use of chemicals that destroy soil quality by killing essential microbes.

  • Finally, the martins returned.  Now I am waiting for the barn swallows.  
  • We have renovated several pastures.  Had to avoid a few wet spots.  Hopefully, we can get in a couple of days this week.
  • Took down a large sunburst locust on Saturday.  I little tricky as it was near the house.  Now we have about two hours of chipping to clean up the non firewood limbs.  Then when we get time will have to cut, split and stack firewood for next winter.
  • Debra has lots of our garden planted and many seedlings started.
  • There was an excellent interview in the recent ACREs magazine by Walter Jehne.  When I find it I will post it.  
  • B. Wertz got the fat lamb.  It's not very often that someone calls me having a lamb.
  • We are all caught up on freezer beef.  The ground beef continues to grow and I have several wanting a Dirt Hog.

Pesticide regulation has been hijacked by pesticide makers.”

This is just amazing. Anyone who has tagged a new born calf will appreciate this.

I can't blame the cow, they are doing exactly what I want a new mother to do, protect her new born against anything including me.

  • We are ready for the scouts.  We got all of our purple martin houses cleaned, repaired, and some new ones added.  With the warmer weather they may come very soon.  The plovers are already here. I saw a blue bird on the lane yesterday.  They are beautiful.  Wish I had more.
  • Hopefully, we will separate the cows from the yearlings and beeves this coming week.  Cows should start calving soon.  We will weigh the beeves.  I'm not optimistic.  There may be one,  maybe two that are ready, but this has been a very difficult winter.  The next freezer beef may be in May.  
  • Iris had her calf this morning.  Before I got there the new born had found the muddiest spot in the lot and was stuck in at least 12 inches of mud.  I drug her out by her ears, only part that was dry enough to hold to.  After three buckets of warm soapy water and several towels, and hands full of straw we got her in the stall.  She is a very strong calf.  I milked Iris, got a gallon of colostrum and gave the calf a bottle, and two hours later she was up nursing. It sure will be nice to get great milk again.  My substitute cow was a bust.  No cream and milk was white, pure white. The substitute will be on Craigs List this Summer.

The Neglected Mineral We Cannot Live Without



First of all, modern agricultural methods favor the universal use of NPK fertilizers (nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium). Both potassium and phosphorus are antagonists of magnesium in the soil, and on calcareous soils create a relative magnesium deficiency (the magnesium present is bound and therefore unavailable to the crop). On sandy or loamy soils that are slightly acid, an actual magnesium deficiency often exists, as the magnesium leaches from the soil and is also unavailable to the crop. This leaching also occurs in response to acid rain. Magnesium, in fact, is one of the most depleted minerals in farm soils. To add insult to injury, new plant hybrids are continually introduced that have been bred to survive on these mineral-depleted soils. 

Fluoride in drinking water binds with magnesium, creating a nearly insoluble mineral compound that ends up deposited in the bones, where its brittleness increases the risk of fractures.

 “In the large intestine it [precipitated calcium] interferes with peristalsis, which results in constipation. When calcium precipitates out in the kidneys and combines with phosphorus or oxalic acid, kidney stones are formed. Calcium can deposit in the lining of the bladder and prevent it from fully relaxing, and therefore from filling completely with urine. This leads to frequent urination problems, especially in older people. Calcium can precipitate out of the blood and deposit in the lining of the arteries, causing hardening (arteriosclerosis). . . It can coat and stiffen. . . plaque in the arteries. . . [and] can cause blood pressure to rise as well as increase the risk of heart attack and stroke. Calcium can even deposit in the brain.

  • Ground beef pickup went very well.  The processor messed things up by not giving me the correct amount, pounds of ground beef.  We had the correct number for roasts and briskets.  The schedule of coming every five minutes worked quite well.  That may be the way pickup is handled for future pickups.
  • The next list is already started.  The next time will depend on how fast the list fills, but my guess is it will not be until May.  When warm weather returns we will do smaller amounts so we can get it into your cooler faster.
  • Onion plants are up and growing.  Have been pruned a couple of times.  Cabbage plants have two leaves.  Seed orders are arriving and soon other plants will be on the plant bench. 
  • It's just two weeks until the scouts, purple martins, will be coming.  I got to finish getting their houses ready. It's been pretty easy to not get outside and do the normal late winter stuff done.  It's been cold and a lot of snow.
  • I usually don't include links for things other than health, sustainable ag, and food, but I have included a Tedx talk.  I think you'll enjoy it.  If you know someone in high school or college you may want to forward this on.

No time to plow through the Monsanto Papers? No worries. Now you can watch the movie.

"The Monsanto Papers," a documentary produced by ABC News in Australia, reveals the secret tactics Monsanto(now owned by Bayer AG) used to hide the toxic truth about its flagship product—Roundup weedkiller.

The Monsanto Papers consist of millions of pages of internal corporate documents and communications that piece together how Monsanto colluded with U.S. regulatory agencies to conceal studies linking glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, to non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL).

The documents came to light during the landmark case of Dewayne Johnson v. Monsanto. Johnson is a former school groundskeeper who developed non-Hodgkin lymphoma after routinely spraying school properties with Roundup. His was the first of now 9,000 similar cases pending against Bayer-Monsanto.

Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride is a medical doctor with two postgraduate degrees: Master of Medical Sciences in Neurology and Master of Medical Sciences in Human Nutrition.

She graduated as a medical doctor in Russia. After practicing for five years as a Neurologist and three years as a Neurosurgeon she started a family and moved to the UK, where she got her second postgraduate degree in Human Nutrition. She practices in the UK as a nutritionist and not as a medical doctor.

She is well known for developing a concept of GAPS (Gut And Psychology Syndrome), which she described in her book Gut And Psychology Syndrome - Natural Treatment for Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Depression and Schizophrenia, now in its second edition. Thousands of people around the world follow the highly successful GAPS Nutritional Protocol to help themselves and their families. You can learn about GAPS on www.gaps.me

In her clinic Dr Campbell-McBride works as a nutritional consultant with many patients with heart disease, high blood pressure, arrhythmia, stroke and other complications of atherosclerosis. She has become acutely aware of the existing confusion about nutrition and these conditions, which spurred an intensive study into this subject. The result of this study was her book Put Your Heart In Your Mouth! - What Really Is Heart Disease And What We Can Do To Prevent And Even Reverse It.

Dr Campbell-McBride is a keynote speaker at many professional conferences and seminars around the world. She frequently gives talks to health practitioners, patient groups and associations. She is also a Member of The Society of Authors, The British Society for Ecological Medicine, and is a Director on the Advisory Board of The Weston A Price Foundation. She has contributed to many books on nutrition and is a regular contributing health editor to a number of magazines and newsletters.

  • This next Saturday may be a pickup day and MAYBE NOT!!!
  • They are forecasting snow on Friday.  But as usual they are not sure of the track of the storm.  SO, I will have the amount available on Wednesday.  I think there will be enough for everyone.  If it is a little short, I may reduce your amount a little so that everyone gets some.  For example, if you have requested 50 pounds, you may get only 45 pounds.
  • On Wednesday, I will send an email with your amount.  If there is a mistake, please let me know immediately.  ON FRIDAY EVENING I WILL SEND AN EMAIL AFTER THE SIX O'CLOCK WEATHER.  EITHER THE PICKUP IS ON, OR IT WILL BE DELAYED UNTIL THE NEXT SATURDAY.
  • If there is a pickup, we will have a split pickup time.  Half of you will get the 12 pm time and the rest will get 12:45.  We have just too many this time and there would be a traffic jam.

    There's no doubt about it: Fluoride should not be ingested. Even scientists from the EPA's National Health and Environmental Effects Research Laboratory have classified fluoride as a "chemical having substantial evidence of developmental neurotoxicity."

    Furthermore, according to the CDC, 41 percent of American adolescents now have dental fluorosis — unattractive discoloration and mottling of the teeth that indicate overexposure to fluoride. Clearly, children are being overexposed, and their health and development put in jeopardy. Why? The only real solution is to stop the archaic practice of water fluoridation in the first place.

  • This weather is presenting some challenges.  I have two deliveries to make this Tuesday.  One to Holden and one to near Clinton.  And I am watching very closely a forecasted another 3-6 inches of snow.  Hopefully, the processor will accept two beeves before their normal 4 o'clock.  It's going to be very close.
  • I gave a presentation at the monthly meeting of the Citizens for Environmental Action.  I gave them them several web links for various presentation that supported my topic of "Preservation of Soil".  I will be included those links in my updates.  There is about a semester of information, so I will be doing this incrementally.  Those links will be in a very large font and will be at the end of each UPDATE.

Those of you interested in Vit D and Vit K2 may want to read this information from Dr. Mercola. https://products.mercola.com/vitamin-d-k2-supplement/?utm_source=prnl&utm_medium=email&utm_content=dpe&utm_campaign=20181022Z1&et_cid=DM242348&et_rid=450847322

There's no doubt about it: Fluoride should not be ingested. Even scientists from the EPA's National Health and Environmental Effects Research Laboratory have classified fluoride as a "chemical having substantial evidence of developmental neurotoxicity."

Furthermore, according to the CDC, 41 percent of American adolescents now have dental fluorosis — unattractive discoloration and mottling of the teeth that indicate overexposure to fluoride. Clearly, children are being overexposed, and their health and development put in jeopardy. Why? The only real solution is to stop the archaic practice of water fluoridation in the first place.

            BREEZY HILL FARM WEEKLY UPDATE

  • Not much going on, just ice and more ice.  Hopefully, this next week will be warmer.
  • I was able to schedule another beef for ground beef, so we should be able to fill most of your requests.  Pickup will be Mar 2.  
  • Have started another Dirt Hog list.  If interested send your request.
  • I'll be presenting a short talk next week on "Soils".  I've collected a bunch of links to presentations for that group.  I will include some of those in my updates in the coming weeks.  The links (presentations) are quite informative.  I think most assume that the path we are on is sustainable.  Well, maybe and maybe not.  After watching/listening to the various presenters you may come to the conclusion that the Farm Bureau and current USDA may need to make some major changes to their "Feed the World" storyline.

  • Research shows having a vitamin D blood level above 60 ng/mL lowers your risk of breast cancer by more than 80 percent, compared to having a level below 20 ng/mL


Chances are, you've been barraged with reminders that mammograms save lives. Unfortunately, little effort is made to educate women about actual prevention. Detecting cancer has nothing to do with prevention. At that point, it's already too late.

Mammograms also have serious health risks, none of which are addressed by the conventional breast cancer awareness campaigns. Importantly, vitamin D optimization could potentially eliminate a vast majority of breast cancers, yet this key information is being completely ignored.
