spring and death

Sorry I haven’t updated my blog in awhile, I have been outside farming. Today I’m going to talk about spring and its glory: COMPOSTING ANIMALS!!! If you city folk ever find a dead robin on the sidewalk, which I have seen many times, go to the sheriffs horse stables, get a bucket of horse poop, put the robin in your back yard and pour the horsecrap on top of it. In 2 weeks, look underneath the poop and you will find clean bones and nothing else.
 The connection between composting dead animals and springtime is that its really hard to compost in the winter because the animals are frozen, and most animals die in the wintertime, in summer, it is really smelly and gross and fall is acceptable because it is just like spring though there aren’t a plethora of dead animals like there would be in the spring… Most farmers have to deal with dead animals, and they have to spend their money on a big truck that comes by and scoops up dead animals it can be very expensive. A good solution to this issue is composting. In Sweden they are composting humans instead of cremation because it is more ecologically sound.
 All animals die, us included, good and humane farmers have to deal with this just as bad and abusive ones do, just maybe not on such a grand scale.
