Those bales are used about the project as ground cover, making of compost and yes some is used for feed of the heard. The wife has successful grown potatoes, mushroom and strawberries in the bales.

Mushrooms are the easiest. Just leave a few bales out in the early wet season. All you have to do is get there first to harvest them!

Did you wife condition the bales before she planted the strawberries and potatoes? Timing? Now?

Ha Ha, there is an answer I am quite familiar with around here. But we got there quicker than usual. Congrats on the new calf.

My wife has her contacts that are mostly spot on so I just stand back and support her. Her latest brain storm is a cassava factory about 15km from us down by the crossing. She brought back 500kg of cassava skins as cattle feed. This is non cyanide. 100 baht per 500 kg.

Some happy cows tonight as you could smell the fermentation a km away. She is trying to get a 10 wheeler.

Mrs KB would have done her homework.

The feed bought in would be more a concern for the organic status of the rice and meat.  

You would not risk a cheap product otherwise.
