    Best answer: I bought a house with a well. It had coliform in the water and it smelled funky. I poured 4 gallons of bleach down the well casing and let it sit for a couple of hours.

Then I ran the water to all the outlets in the house until I could smell bleach. I let it sit this way for several days then ran the water here and there until it had no more bleach smell. It was fine after that, and we lived there for 12 years with no further issues.

  • I need help trying to figure out my Cow's Calf's behavior?

    Best answer: Essentially that heifer is in the 'naughty teenager' phase where the circle of fear becomes much less important to them. It is bullying you effectively and you have to stop letting it do this as it probably regards you as one of its peer group.

  • What happens when chickens on antibiotic-free farms get sick?

    Best answer: Both answerers are basically correct. If an individual or small group of chickens get sick, they would typically be culled. If a larger number (or a more valuable animal like a cow or pig) had an issue, they would be treated, and sold at a lower price to a market that would accept animals that have been treated... show more
    Best answer: Both answerers are basically correct. If an individual or small group of chickens get sick, they would typically be culled. If a larger number (or a more valuable animal like a cow or pig) had an issue, they would be treated, and sold at a lower price to a market that would accept animals that have been treated with antibiotics.

    In all cases, the animal (and their milk, in the case of dairy cows) is not marketed until the treatment has ended and a withdrawal period has passed to avoid having antibiotic residues in the food system.

    For years and years just about every small family farm had a cow or two. I'm thinking back to the 19th century. On a lot of these farms, it was just like the pictures painted by authors like Wilder and Hardy. Milk was pretty much a thing that you got to have if you lived on a farm. and cows were well cared and treated humanely. Well at least till the family had too much milk production and took Ol' Bessy to the butcher.

    But technological developments allowed milk to be sold to urban dwellers. This was the birth of the dairy industry. It would be interesting to figure out what development was the tipping point. I vote for the glass bottle. Anyway by the turn of the century dairy farms were profitable and popping up near urban areas.

    Maybe as an interesting end note, NPR Just had an article about one of NYC's earliest diaries closing and becoming a plant milk plant.
    https://www.npr.org/sections/thesalt/201...

    Anyway, for most of the 20th century, dairy farms were still pretty small. I don't know the exact numbers but it was something like this: before World War II virtually all milk came from dairies that had less than 150 cows. Today almost all milk comes from dairies over 150 cows. Dairies with herds over 150 are what we imagine when we say factory farm.

    Some of the biggest changes have occurred in the last 10 years. Here in California, 90% of our milk comes from diaries of over 500 cows.

    Something else you might want to cover is the role of the dairy boards. In the 19th century, milk was not a staple or even considered safe or healthy. But the dairy boards went to work with advertising and lobbying in the beginning of the century. Today everyone thinks milk is healthy and even essential. Milk has become totally ubiquitous. It's relatively cheap because of subsidies. And ruthlessly marketed to children as part of the school lunch program and Happy Meals.

    This is a great article. but that first flyover is killer.
