  • Faul Farm provides advice on raising chickens to the Future Farmers of America

    Henry County Public Schools’ Future Farmers of America students took a field trip to Riverside Faul Family Farm in Sulphur March 9 to learn about raising chickens. The farm raises layers and broilers, manager Andre Faul Jr. said. He buys chicks and raises them in the farm’s pastures.
    After the birds have eaten everything that isn’t nailed down, usually every three to four days, he moves the coops by trolley to another section for fresh nutrition. “That’s healthier for the chickens and healthier for the consumers,” he explained.

  • Introducing horses to lush spring pastures

    Spring is almost here, and guess what? That means cool season grasses are starting to explode with growth.
    The spring growth provides excellent forages for horses, but the quick change in diet can cause issues in your horses.
    Horses that have been fed hay all winter have adapted their gut microbes to break down more fibrous material, and the lush pastures are low in fiber compared with cured hay.
    This means that the spring lush pastures can easily upset your horses’ stomachs because the horse was not accustomed to eating fresh pastures for months.
