Saturday,I had to travel to school to pick up the livestock scale so we could weigh Junior's pig. The fair is coming up next weekend and his pig is the biggest we have raised ... which is good unless she is TOO big by Saturday.
She can't be more than 280 pounds next Saturday or she will be disqualified from the fair.
More on that in a later post this week.
Bear loves to ride in the JEEP, (who wouldn't?) so I took him along.
Since we had to go to school anyway to get the scale, I decided to stop by my classroom to feed the freshwater prawns.
Bear went with me of course.
Here's Bear performing a water quality test on the recirculating shrimp farm system.
He pronounced it "delicious".
The shrimp seemed startled by the appearance of Bear's testing equipment, but no permanent harm was done.
Water quality testing is hard work, so Bear took a little break while I fed the shrimp.
On the ride home, he shared his ideas for improving the filtration, and of course he was right as usual.
I count myself lucky to have an aquacultural consultant who works for dog biscuits.
