Hi everyone

Recommended Posts

Hello.

growing since 90's. im living in France, unfortunatly one of the most repressive country about marijuana in EU. Here its forbidden to present the cannabis under a positive light.

i started my hobby with 3 mystery seeds from the bag probably from NL. At this time, no growshop, no internet, only this sun dried and densely packed african landrace full of seeds.

I could Self those 3 seeds by accident and grow during 3/4 years the best buds in the university, that what gave me the motivation to keep going a few years.

around 2010 i  lost my seed collection box due to an accident (some original lao , thai, afghan i could get from travellers and myself, and thousands other rare seeds like more than 30 peyotl strains lost)

That really affected my will to continue and i had a 10 years break with growing.

I own a small "hobby farm" with veggies, fruit trees and a few rare strain cows, 45N

Every year i output a few cubic meters of black wormy compost from hay/cowshit/fresh green matter, wich if a lot too much for my vegs.

I spent the last month setting up a clean indoor growroom , and rooting random clones from friends. Not the best choice, but may be enough for a test run. I will post a few pics, but i dont think there won't be much to say about those (OAseeds). I ordered some Sannie for selecting an indoor mother.

I would like to grow outdoor, but altough i have a big land, i dont have so much available quiet spots ( neighboors, hunters, hungry cows are the most dangerous predators..)

I will probably try the HybridFromHell collection outdoor next year. I want to play with Guerilla Gold genetic :)

 

Best regards

bon soir ,aya welcome aboard

rare cows?? what "strain" you got,if i may ask?

Bonjour

That's some "Bretonne Pie Noir" (race_code029)

Was a very popular "landrace" cow before 1960 in west of France with about one million cows

in 1970, most farmer switched to the well knowed PrimHolstein with her 30liters of milk/day

In 1990 there was only 1000 BPN and only 12 bulls left

Now growing again because this cow (10 liters/day)has the best cream% and butter% wich is ideal for making top cheese (im not talking about cheddar :wacko:)

Adpated to full outdoor and more resistant than modern cows, they also eat very little.

A 2/3 year cow can be transformed into 400Kg of streaky meat with marbled fat. Fortunatly i never tried as i only got female babies until now. Probably the hardest task for a hobbyist farmer who love his cows, but great lesson to teach the value of a steak.

Hi Aya, welcome aboard! Cool looking cows! Are they naturally a smaller breed? Or is that a calf? It's head almost looks more grown up. Thanks for the pics. happy growing!

Yes its a small breed, about half size of todays cow.

This calf father died long time ago. Its from frozen semen. I follow a breeding map from a farmers group for keeping this strains as diverse as possible.

Mines have real dog mind, always following me, asking for apples/leafs/herbs  I discovered recently they LOVE beer. Now they run when they hear glass clattering

They are IBL, but i have the "Princess" and the "Tough girl" phenotypes. Still wondering for the calf.

I've been thinking about "growing" 1 or 2 for meat. Too bad you can't send seeds, lol. Nice looking animals you have there.
