    Eric, it's our finals week here at our college and I'm sitting here in my 10th Gen hoodie... Would be fun if folks sent in pics wearing the 10th Gen merch and have you all post the pics somewhere. Looking forward to the next vid.

    At least the cow waited for you to clear the area before demonstrating what she thought of your idea. Score now stands cows 1 farmer 0, but it is just top of the 2nd inning.

    Dealing with cattle is basically dealing with 800 to 1000 lb toddlers: got to get into everything and put it in their mouth.

    The pride you take in your squared away facilities, your thoughtful care of your herd, and your careful stewardship of your land is to be commended.

    You ever thought of becoming a consultant for other dairy farmers who want to build barns? You have the 'lived experience'

  • Terry Stephens

    I admire and appreciate the care you have for your animals, Eric.๐Ÿ˜ƒโค๏ธโค๏ธ

    Animals are so curious. Watching you and your dad clamping the pipes. Great video

    Coat the pins with "1 Million Scoville" from Amazon. It will only take a drop per pin, trust me. No cow will touch a pin after that experience. I used it to stop a genius-goat from opening gates.

    Loosen clamps holding PVC pipe enough to move or roll. Unstable footing may deter. Paint pins with mustard, cayenne, horseradish, etc. Or with pureed weeds they won't eat. A few re- coatings may change habits.

    Pretty cool reuse of PVC pipes! I canโ€™t wait to see how long the fixโ€™s lasts. 25 years ago I used white PVC pipe outside and the sun made it really brittle. But it was good enough

    A cheap fix would be to take a heavy zip tie , loop around the top of the pin through the next hole to the rod thats the pin goes through. Don't have to tell you just how bored and nosey some of these heifers get . Hope this might help. Cheap easy fix if it does . This comes with 40 plus years of experience, sometimes the most simple ideas work out.

    You should do a tour of all the farm buildings/ mixing rooms. I love to see the way old building and barns especially, are constructed.

    A bit of SynergyLabs 538 Fooey may work to deter the cows from licking the pins.. Its a bitterant used for pets. but I imagine cows might find it pretty digusting too. Of course you may have to use it with each new batch of cows...

    Hi Eric great video as usual๐Ÿ‘, had a similar problem one time, we put an electric fence wire along the top, was a quick and simple fix
