****** About Living Traditions Homestead ******
Living Traditions Homestead is all about living a simple and sustainable way of life. We believe the world has gotten too “busy” and that people are missing out on many of the true blessings this world has to offer. We started as a small urban homestead in Gilbert, AZ and after the city grew up around us, decided it was time leave corporate America and take a big leap of faith by moving our family to the Missouri Ozarks.
We put out 2 new videos every week! Wednesday and Saturday. We hope you will become part of our homestead family by subscribing to our channel and watching as we give up the rat race and live simpler, more fulfilling life in the country.

Im a bit late to the show. Regina Sask Canada. Your propane is literally to cold to go into gas form. Bit of insulation on the tank goes a long way believe it or not.

Propane can get sluggish when you get to below 0. Not sure what to do with a 100 gallon tank. Small tanks you can wrap with a towel to give a little insulation.

At Home Depot and I am sure many other hardware stores, you can buy a thermostat, that controls any light 120v appliance. You can set the temp from about freezing, on up. People use them for heating tapes for water pipe or lights to signal. Rather than get out in the cold, you could set one up to turn on when a temp drops below a certain point and it could turn on an outside light that you would see from the house. As long as it does not come on, you know your pilot light is still doing its' job. Light on, get dressed and get out there to relight it.

When it is very cold propane does not vaporize fast enough to fill the headspace in the tank and maintain pressure. The more empty the tank the more problems you will have. A heat lamp helps.

Idk if anyone has said anything about the propane yet, but the gas will condense when it gets real cold out. Try a electric or 12v heat pad around the bottom of the tank. Love the channel! Hope to see more.

the problem is the liquid propane can’t vaporize from liquid to gas very well in extreme cold. Im from upstate New York and have seen this quite often. One of the best ways to prevent this is by burying the tank.

WRT the pilot light in the sprout house, As temper drops outside, the humidity in a heated room drops. This means that, not only water vapor but, any gas will dissipate faster. That is why the pilot light was going out. If you can adjust the input to the pilot light, increase the amount of gas coming in.

You might have connection to propane tank either too tight or not tight enough just shut off tank and take off connector then reconnect. The heater itself is probably not the issue.

My name is Pete. I'm curious if you let the boar have access to mirtle the next day as well. I used to work on three different pig farms and on two of those farms sows would get bred morning and afternoon of the same day and then possibly again the following morning , so up to three times. Just curious if she could have been bred the following day, it would give you another day to count.

My local news just said cold temps can make gas less combustible. Maybe that’s what’s happening with your greenhouse. Tucson AZ’s most recent super cold snap was 17 F in 2011 (I think). The gas company wasn’t used to such high usage so they turned it off in some areas. Water pipes burst all over the city!

To help protect the piglets from the cold, you should build a triangular frame in the corner about 10" above the floor. That will be high enough for the babies to get under the frame. Enclose the frame with plywood and cut a hole in the top for a heat lamp. the babies can go under to stay warm and it is low enough that the sow can't. It also gives the babies some protection from being laid on by mother when they are feeding which none of want us to see.. Good luck..

A friend of mine, who lives in Maine, and I were just talking ( via email ) about the problems people have with propane in colder climates. He was telling me the propane up there is not like what we get down here ( I live in north Texas ). They don't have problems until the temp reaches -20F, or so. Not sure what you could about other than speak to your propane dealer. Maybe look in the yellow pages for Yankee Propane Dealers! 👌

You need a fresh air pipe located under the pilot from outside to keep your pilot lit... your small area and the extra heat you are burning depletes the oxygen from your room.

Definitely pregnant. She’s bagging up and she could surprise you and you will come out one morning and find a bunch of piglets. You will want to have a lot more straw in Myrtles pen so she can burrow in it (they will use it like a blanket). In the cold this will help her a lot.

Stillborn babies of all kinds can sometimes be saved, if you check their airway, use a baby nose-rubber-bulb thing. You can stimulate their hearts too. Remember, if they are dead, there isn't' much to lose by trying. I've seen it happen, when I thought all hope was gone. Best wishes for you all. More hay! She's not a chicken. They need inches off the floor for a real nest. Throw a bail in there and she'll have those babies.

Hi Kevin and Sarah! Do you keep sourdough starter? I recently started over proofing sourdough, because I'm allergic to all grasses and grain is the seeds of grass. I was reading that the slow yeast process breaks down some of the "bad" elements of grain, and decoupes the minerals from a binding protein that inhibits assimilation of the minerals. I think it's perfect for the way you make your no knead artisan bread, which, by the way, your cooking and baking vlogs are really helpful. I am going to try your English Muffin recipe with my sourdough starter. Thank you for sharing!

Hours before your sow farrows she will start to have a discharge of fluid. Your sow is pregnant. Your pigs are kind of fat. I grew up on a diversity farm with cattle and hogs. My dad created his own feed blend for sows, feeder piggies, and butcher hogs. He never let our gilts and sows get too fat. When a dry sow is too fat, she may not breed back the 1st mating and fat sows that did breed back or got pregnant had smaller litters. Back when dad was alive our feed blend for brood sows and replacement gilts was ground oats with soybean meal and minerals. We had the dry and pregnant sows on pastures and feed them twice a day but carefully made sure they didn''t gain too much weight. Our sows farrowed twice a year and our average litter size at weaning was 10 piglets. Our average litter size was much higher than the state average and the extension service guys couldn't believe our performance. We had mixed breed hogs. Maybe your breed of pigs are supposed to be heavy. Also in mertel's pen on the left side it looked like you had a "bumper" or horizontal 2x4 nailed to the wall studs. We had bumpers on the sides of our farrow pens in the barn. Each bumper was a 2x4 nailed to a couple of pieces of 2x4 in order to position the bumper about 2-3 inches away from the side of the pen fence or panel. That way if a sow roles to her side and she is too close to the side of the pen, her back will come against the bumper and give a pigllet room enough to not get laid on. Without bumpers in the pen you might have piglets get laid on.

That much snow is amazing for you!!! You must feel completely snowed in! Take care of yourself! We have snow up to our thighs and waist. We've been negative 10 to negative 20. You know, once you get below zero, negative 10, or negative 20 the temperature basically feels the same to your body. I mean, really, cold is cold once you get that low. It all feels the same. My son was snow blowing in just his flannel shirt, so yes we are pretty used to it. HOWEVER, we have a shorter summer and although we do get mostly 80s, some 90s and 100 degree days, it never lasts like yours does. We could not handle that! So, it's just what you're used to. Keep those babies safe in the belly until the weather is better. Smart momma! It's so hard to wait to see those little piglets!

My Juliana had her babies yesterday morning! The babies should move back more but... her tail is cranked sideways, her teets will get more full. Looks a day or two out. How many days were they together? If she has multiple litters she will hold as long as she can. Feisty is a good sign. Mine was double bred so she had a premie born dead. Yes we had snow also but it melted fast. Im waiting, they can have another lotter a week later. Crazy right? Wishing you the best!

So we have a similar wall heater and when it’s cold the flame does wierd stuff, and we have to turn it up on high other wise the flame turns bright orange and is fluffy. Propane guys checked for low propane and such. It was all good he said that propane is wet out of 400 gallons 300 is water. So the flame will do weird things. Scents, essential oils etc will also make the flame change. It was 45 below here in mcclusky North Dakota and our wall propane heater stayed on high so the flame would stay consistent and blue
