@ram “…a lot of hormones are used in the production of meat.”
As well as milk, which is mostly consumed by children.
The dairy industry has fought long and hard to prevent milk producers from labeling their milk as ‘hormone free’ when they DO NOT use hormones to increase lactation (look up rBGH).
Also, NO ONE should ever consume any form of soya other than products that have been thoroughly fermented to destroy the endocrine disrupting hormone mimickers (look up phytoestrogen).
Soy is the primary protein source in most livestock feeds, and the hormone mimickers have been found present in the eggs and meat of chickens (we feed only soy-free feed). Some form of soy or soy derivatives are used in nearly every processed food product on the store shelves. Soy milk is poison.

@afewknowthetruth “Six months ago Dima was telling about losses of Russian lives.”
I have, in recent times, heard Dima quote reports of Russian losses that came from disparate sources (such as social media posts) when he got them, or when the RU MoD reports losses from shells fired into Russian territories. I am fairly confident that this information is simply hard to acquire; certainly the Russians publish as little as possible, holding their cards very close to the chest.
As for you, I sure hope you are not in the direct path of ‘that beast’. Be well. And safe.February 12, 2023 at 12:09 am in reply to: Debt Rattle February 11 2023 #128791
@zerosum “Note: Ukraine. Military Summary And Analysis 2023.02.11 does not like to tell about Russian failures and about loss of Russian lives.”
Dima at Military Summary channel is actually pro-Ukrainian. His kill stats are quoted directly from the Russian Ministry Of Defense daily report. The Ukrainian military does not (afaik) publish any stats except for occasional gross exaggerations; I suspect they don’t have their shit together enough to compile those numbers. He reports what info he can find. And he occasionally refers to the Russians as ‘the enemy’. He seems to try to be as honest as he can.
My main beef with him is the huge amount of time he spends describing what he thinks the Ukes or Russians are going to do, or what they ought to do. He is often very wrong in his prognostications.January 31, 2023 at 8:37 pm in reply to: Debt Rattle January 31 2023 #127837
@phoenixvoice “…articles multiplying on the ‘net about how raising hens is SO COSTLY that ya’ll are better off financially buying eggs from the supermarket.”
Having raised countless chickens, and consumed/sold countless dozens of eggs while carefully tracking the real-world costs, I can tell you with certainty that, in temperate climates, you absolutely cannot produce eggs as cheaply as those from the ‘food-industrial-complex’. In a sub-tropical climate where natural foods (bugs) are continually abundant so purchased feed is not needed, eggs can be pretty cheap. Not so here in Colorado.
The industrial egg producers have not only economies of scale to their advantage, but very importantly, their feed costs are a fraction of what we pay for retail chicken ration. Roughly half of the cost of the primary feed grains (corn and soy) is paid by the govt via the ‘farm bill’ subsidies. Backyard chicken owners pay substantially more — multiples more — for feed.
Regarding the Tractor Supply branded chicken feed: this is some of the worst, bottom-of-the-barrel cheapo crap you can buy. It is made mostly from the waste byproducts of the grain processing industry. I would be surprised if it came close to meeting the crude protein levels indicated on their label, or that the protein-bearing ingredients are of good quality or digestibility. IIRC their label even has a disclaimer saying something to the effect that what is stated thereon “may not reflect the actual contents of the bag” and you should go to their website for more info. The idea that they would deliberately incorporate something to prevent egg production into their product is pretty ludicrous. As previously stated, we’re talking about really crummy feed.
Inadequate protein will always hamper egg production, especially in hens over a year old; especially especially in winter when the photoperiod is short since the hormone that drives egg laying is stimulated by the optic nerve. Birds in nature do not produce offspring when there is no food out there.
Be aware that the industrial producers figured out a long time ago that the ‘optimal’ protein level for egg layer ration is somewhere around 16 to 18 percent. Meaning that if you feed more protein (the most expensive ingredient in the ration) you may get more eggs, but not enough more to pay for the added protein. 16% is the point of diminishing returns. Given the option, chickens will consume as much protein as possible, say 80 or 90 percent, primarily animal foods. So it stands to reason that a low quality ration will simply not provide enough nourishment to sustain egg production.

@Bill7 “Lots of doom-porn out there.. who benefits, and in what ways?”
In my experience, the types who produce this stuff are generally psychotic (psychopathological) on some level. IOW, their perspective and understanding are removed from reality on the ground. They live from crisis to crisis, event to event, etc., constantly spewing their twisted opinions in order to build their sense of significance, their intrinsic value, their self-esteem. “Look at me! I’m important! I know stuff you don’t know!” This is the stuff of the selfie generation: narcissism. Solipsism, even.
It doesn’t matter that the crap they were spewing six months ago has long since been proven wrong; their attention is focused only on their current obsession. Look at Alex Jones — he’s been sued and humiliated for the nonsense he has said in the past, but at the time, it made him look and feel really important (in his own eyes, and in those who followed him).

@my parents said know comment #115775 re: something big in Denver and associated video…
I’m 70 miles north of Denver, not hearing any rumblings from the conspiracy types (I’m associated with a number of them, many are my customers who gravitate toward my little homestead (doomstead?) farm.
Even the video clip replays from the Denver news channels refer to the whole ‘but-out bag giveaway’ as part of ‘national preparedness month’. Not sure how they’re gonna effect the population much since Denver metro is in excess of 75 million peeps. Awful lot of bug-out bags.
I haven’t look closely into all this, but considering that in the past decade, the Colorado front range area has lost several thousand homes to wildfires (some not far west of my place, and over a thousand were in a completely developed subdivision in a Denver suburb — the entire neighborhood burned down), I can’t help but guess that this is who these efforts are targeted at.

@slimyalligator “The issue with mechanical cultivation is it burns up organic matter (CO2 bloom) which has a work around. Crop rotation.”
Zactly! Which is why ALL annual tillage crops destroy topsoil. Crop rotations MUST include multi-year spells of perennial polyculture (multi-species) pasture in order to rebuild lost topsoil by annual cropping, tilling, cultivating — disturbing the soil — etc. And those renewal spells are best accomplished by grazing ruminants on those polyculture pastures to assist in carbon sequestration by repeatedly grazing down the plant top growth and converting it to manure.
My land is old riverbed, so it ‘grows’ cobbles as frost heave pushes them up; an actual ‘rock garden’!. Constantly de-stoning, have small mountains of river rock to get rid of since we have no use for them.

@Dr. D “… Greenhouses find it economical to pump in, at great expense 5x the present CO2 levels which causes an explosion of growth…”
Exactly, and another good example: Corn farmers routinely cultivated their corn fields when the plants were almost too tall to run the equipment over them. The primary purpose was to knock down the weeds growing between the rows. Also, it broke up the surface crust allowing better water penetration — this is especially important when furrow irrigating since it deepens the flow channel while piling soil up on the bases of the plants helping them to stay erect (prevent lodging).
Few of them understood that this process also introduced a lot of oxygen into the topsoil causing a bloom of bacterial action which volatilizes (oxidizes) soil carbon (organic matter) into carbon dioxide. This bloom and subsequent release of large amounts of CO2 around the plants contributes to an explosion of growth such that you could hear the plants growing. The guy in this video mentions the rapid growth after cultivating, though he doesn’t say anything about the CO2 bloom — few conventional (especially older) farmers would know that information.
Sadly, many ‘modern’ farmers use glyphosate applications on their fields for weed control rather than mechanical means. The guy in the video refers to cultivating as being “like the good old days”!August 27, 2022 at 9:39 pm in reply to: Debt Rattle August 27 2022 #114416

My day for Wendell Berry. @Dr. D’s thoughtful missive about capitalism vs. socialism (reply #114077) immediately brought to mind another of Berry’s essays I was reading earlier today.
The essay, In Distrust Of Movements, Berry makes some observations regarding economies:
“… if we are concerned about land abuse, we have begun a profound work of economic criticism. Study of the history of land use (and any local history will do) informs us that we have had for a long time an economy that thrives by undermining its own foundations. Industrialism, which is the name of our economy, and which is now virtually the only economy of the world, has been from its beginnings in a state of riot. It is based squarely upon the principle of violence toward everything on which it depends, and it has not mattered whether the form of industrialism was communist or capitalist or whatever; the violence toward nature, human communities, traditional agricultures and local economies has been constant. The bad news is coming in, literally, from all over the world. Can such an economy be fixed without being radically changed? I don’t think it can.” (emphasis mine).
Dr. D, if you are not familiar with Berry’s writings, I encourage you to get that way; you and he have a lot in common as exceptionally good thinkers.August 23, 2022 at 8:35 pm in reply to: Debt Rattle August 23 2022 #114059

@phoenixvoice: An excellent rant, indeed! Many thanks. Inspires me to read Marx for myself, having never done so.
You might appreciate some of the writings of the brilliant Wendell Berry. For example, an excerpt from The Idea Of A Local Economy
“…the idea of a local economy rests upon only two principles: neighborhood and subsistence. In a viable neighborhood, neighbors ask themselves what they can do or provide for one another, and they find answers that they and their place can afford. This, and nothing else, is the practice of neighborhood. This practice must be, in part, charitable, but it must also be economic, and the economic part must be equitable; there is a significant charity in just prices.
Of course, everything needed locally cannot be produced locally. But a viable neighborhood is a community; and a viable community is made up of neighbors who cherish and protect what they have in common. This is the principle of subsistence. A viable community, like a viable farm, protects its own production capacities. It does not import products that it can produce for itself. And it does not export local products until local needs have been met. The economic products of a viable community are understood either as belonging to the community’s subsistence or as surplus, and only the surplus is considered to be marketable abroad. A community, if it is to be viable, cannot think of producing solely for export, and it cannot permit importers to use cheaper labor and goods from other places to destroy the local capacity to produce goods that are needed locally. In charity, moreover, it must refuse to import goods that are produced at the cost of human or ecological degradation elsewhere. This principle applies not just to localities, but to regions and nations as well.
The principles of neighborhood and subsistence will be disparaged by the globalists as “protectionism” — and that is exactly what it is. It is a protectionism that is just and sound, because it protects local producers and is the best assurance of adequate supplies to local consumers…”August 20, 2022 at 9:08 pm in reply to: Debt Rattle August 20 2022 #113837

Eating Insects 101:
Look into it and you’ll find that the people groups who have historically done this almost always eat them in their pre-pupal (larval) stage. Insect larvae are rich in both protein and good fats, without any of the chitin. Also, the larvae are generally sterile thus free of the pathogens and parasites which will infect them as adults.
When adult bugs are consumed, it is the inner contents, not the exoskeleton (shell) that are consumed. Survival manuals will tell you that to eat grasshoppers (locusts, large crickets, etc.) you hold them by their hoppers against a hot rock; the boiling innards will burst out where they are easily consumed without having to eat the shell and have been mostly sanitized by the heat.
Once upon a time I watched a fascinating video of some tribesmen in a tropical jungle (I don’t remember where, and my efforts to locate the vid on the webs was fruitless else I would post it here). They would capture a large wasp and tie a feather to its leg with a thread. Then they followed it through the jungle as it led them back to its nest — a grey paper blob the size of a basketball hanging in a tree. After destroying and driving away all the adult wasps with smoke and flames, they would rip the nest open and gorge on the larvae which were the size of a peanut M&M. This was a great treat to them, well worth all the hassle involved in procuring it.
Meal worms (the larvae of the Darkling Beetle) are very commonly fed to reptile pets and are easily produced at home (I have experimented with growing them on the litter from my chicken coop because the chickens love them and this would be a great way to cycle nutrients on the farm if successful…) Before feeding them to your pet, it is strongly advised that you allow the worms to gorge on some nutrient-dense foods for the purpose of ‘gut-loading’ them; your iguana depends as much or more on the contents of the insect’s guts as on the insect’s body.

(From yesterday) @wdt “…transmutation..I don’t think this means what you think it means… Organic transmutation….sorry, no”
Uh sorry, Yes, I know exactly what it means. Just because the scientific orthodoxy of our time runs shrieking with its hair on fire at the mention of it, it has nonetheless been repeatedly found true. Of course, you will have to dig deep and hard to find anything on the ‘net about it precisely because of that orthodoxy. Believe what you want.
As far as feeding straw to cattle, you are absolutely correct. The ‘protein’ in green forages are the molecules with large shares of nitrogen, which is absent in straw (cellulose and lignin). The ‘fermenting’ of those compounds releases the energy necessary to maintain a healthy rumen biome, which can then process limited amounts of cellulose, especially for heat production.July 26, 2022 at 12:46 am in reply to: Debt Rattle July 25 2022 #112171
@aspnaz asks: “Okay, educate me. As a home brewer, I do not see fermentation as bacterial action. In fact, bacterial action will destroy your beer whereas fermentation by yeasts – which are fungi – will produce the good stuff without odd flavours.”
Excellent point of differentiation to be expounded.
Fermentation in the chemical breakdown of a substance by bacteria, yeasts, or other microorganisms, typically involving effervescence and the giving off of heat. The process of fermentation involved in the making of beer, wine, and liquor, is that in which sugars are converted to ethyl alcohol by the action of selective yeasts. Lacto-Fermentation is the action of the type of acid loving bacteria called lactobacilli in which sugars are converted to lactic acid.
Yogurt and sour cream are common lacto-fermented dairy foods, lactobacilli being the native bacteria in raw (unpasteurized) milk. Traditional sour kraut is lacto-fermented cabbage, Korean kimchi is a jumble of vegetables that have been lacto-fermented, or ‘soured’; these are foods that have been processed for long-term preservation. There is no alcohol involved, as with yeast, and lactic acid is a strong disinfectant and therefore a preservative. People around the globe throughout all of known history have employed lactobacilli in the preservation of their food, even though they didn’t know the science behind it.
The ‘fermentation’ in the rumen stomach of a cow is done by variety of bacteria, never yeasts. Incidentally, if a cow cannot burp regularly she will bloat, sometimes requiring the stomach to be lanced to relieve the pressure. If you’ve ever made kombucha, you will have employed a combination of yeasts and bacteria in the form of a blob known as a SCOBY (Symbiotic Community Of Bacteria & Yeasts). To convert wine to vinegar, you employ a bacterial colony known as a ‘mother’ which employs acetobacter to ‘ferment’ the alcohol into acetic acid.
When we brew beer and wine, we certainly seek to avoid bacterial contamination, and want to ONLY employ Saccharomyces in the fermentation process. Unless we are one of those nut-jobs who have taken to using strains of Brettanomyces because it imparts funky flavors — in case you didn’t pick up on it, I DO NOT like “Brett” beers. The ‘Sour Beers’ that have become all the rage in recent times are made by allowing some bacterial fermentation — usually involving lactobacilli — which will impart similar flavors as found in yogurt and sour kraut. Not a big fan of those, either. Malty reds for me.July 25, 2022 at 9:10 pm in reply to: Debt Rattle July 25 2022 #112164
3rd paragraph from the end, farmable bug:July 25, 2022 at 8:56 pm in reply to: Debt Rattle July 25 2022 #112163
“The chicken needs more protein in their feed than leaves them in the egg. The same with bugs. There is no miracle process where bugs generate protein, fat, sugar or any other nutrient without ingesting it first.”
First sentence absolutely correct. Second one not so correct. It is not the higher life form that generates protein etc., it is the bacteria and other microscopic life forms that do this work. Certain families of these ultra-tiny critters can, and do, reconfigure molecules like cellulose into more complex nutrients.
My cows pulverize large volumes of plant tissues then rapidly ferment them through massive bacterial action (that is what fermentation is) in their rumen stomach (the bacteria at work there are collectively referred as ‘the rumen’). The rumen reconfigure the plant tissue molecules into the various lipids and amino acids (building blocks of fats and proteins). The cow then digests the massive volumes of dead bacteria bodies to extract those and other materials for making milk and meat. See A Cow’s Digestive System
Incidentally, this is why humans generally do not thrive on a plant-based diet. We simply lack the facilities (large multi-stomach system) to derive adequate nutrition from plants without giving very special attention to concentrated fats and proteins.
It is bacteria that are essential for the production of fatty and amino acids, carbohydrates, and vitamins (especially the B-complex vits) from simpler molecules. This process occurs within all higher life forms, including ourselves, which is why robust health is tied directly to the quality and health of our gut biome. An insect’s digestive tract is the same in this regard which is why they can convert even ‘very dead’ plant matter (compost) into the building blocks needed for their own growth and reproduction.
Bacteria and fungi are alchemists that can even do elemental transmutation under the right conditions.
Insects are actually significantly more efficient at converting organic matter into proteins than conventional livestock. The limitation to this is that of scale. A 1500 pound cow is much more resilient to environmental changes and easier to manage, thus far less precarious than 1500 pounds of insect larvae and their breeding adults. Those bugs can’t give me 6 gallons of marvelous milk every day. Milk, cream, butter, yogurt, cheese… by chewing on the grass that grows all around me.
Here is a ‘farmable’ bug, the https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WKgg_kncASY. Consider scaling this up to produce tonnage, which is what would be necessary to be of any value.
I have toyed with ‘farming’ mealworms (the larvae of the Darkling Beetle) since they are indigenous and spontaneously appear in the litter that accumulates in the bottom of my chicken coop (I use the ‘deep litter’ method of manure management using high-carbon materials like dry tree leaves, straw, and wood shavings to capture and dry the chicken droppings. This ends up being composted or tilled directly into vegetable growing beds in the fall. Hello Dr. John Day!). Since the mealworms can thrive on old chicken manure, it makes sense to try to use them to convert that manure back into fats and proteins for the chickens. Closed loop!
‘Farming’ insects, especially on waste biomass, makes far more sense as feed for livestock, especially chickens, than for human food. Insects can be very effective vectors for various pathogens, parasites, etc., which cannot survive a chicken’s “hot” gut. Insects are, after all, a chicken’s most natural and preferred food.July 21, 2022 at 7:24 pm in reply to: Debt Rattle July 21 2022 #111882

@Antidote “Re: the Cat 994H fuel burn. Not true. Maybe 1800 liters/hr. Not gallons. Still a lot and we get the point.”
It doesn’t say 1800 gallons per hour, but over a 12 hour shift. That’s 150 gallons per hour which is still an exaggeration according to the Cat Performance Handbook chart to which you refer. The chart says 994H fuel consumption can be as high as 52 gallons per hour under heavy usage.
52 gallons per hour doesn’t surprise me; my little 3-cylinder Kubota easily sucks down well over a gallon an hour under ‘heavy’ usage (heavy for it, that is). 50 gallons is a LOT of diesel, currently worth over $300 at the local retail station.

The subsequent generations — those which survive — will grow up in the midst of the resulting chaos and hardship so will resultingly be tough and resilient unlike their pathetic forebears.
