LOL Vicki you've got your checkout girls sorted!

I think our bill would be WAY less if I didn't buy organic. But that's something I reckon is really important for my family and the earth so we pay extra for that....but boy it can make some things exxy!

I've commented on the other thread that you started Minnie, but I will say that we spend more on feed for our livestock and pets, than we do on ourselves per week! I know that sounds shocking, but its justified when I think that its those animals that feed the family year round (well maybe not the cats and the dogs :roll: or the aged horse). With the floods and rain, the last two years have seen our pastures in conditions less than what we would like, so hence the larger feed bils, otherwise, they are mainly pasture raised animals.

Me too Heidi :lol: :lol:

DH said to a friend not long ago that I overfeed the animals, but he can't complain because he starved them and he almost did... couldn't see the forest for the trees so to speak when he first brought the cattle here. He was so focused on the next paddock that he wasn't seeing the one they were in had no food and I was 'trapped' at the old place with Fatima... but at least he can see it now.

So many look at the cows belly, when they should be looking at their rear and spine... the belly will blow out just with the drink it's not food! :roll:
