The chickens survived! ☔😀 – Pasture Posts #84

Here’s the weekly roundup from Watson Farms and your direct connection to your farmer. Enjoy the latest edition of Pasture Posts!

Our broiler chickens are especially susceptible to flooding as we have learned in the past, so we were very careful to monitor them closely during the heavy rainfall on Friday. If rainfall starts piling up in any of the pasture shelters then the birds get really wet and really cold. Thankfully we did not lose a single chicken! The shelters were in a good area of the field and the ground soaked up a lot of the rainfall. Come along in the video below as we perform one of the many checks Friday afternoon.

Also, Kelly shot a video on Saturday of me letting the cattle herd into the next paddock. Come see how we keep our cattle full and happy!

What’s Next For Watson Farms? – Pasture Posts #83

Here’s the weekly roundup from Watson Farms and your direct connection to your farmer. Enjoy the latest edition of Pasture Posts!

We’ve had a lot of things happening over the last month or so, and we wanted to keep you apprised of some of the ways that our farm is growing. It has truly felt like a marathon of a summer dealing with labor issues, tough summer weather, freezer issues, and building contractor delays. But we don’t like to dwell on the negatives, so let’s look at some of the positives of where we are right now.

This year so far we’ve been able to add several team members from customer service to delivery drivers. We greatly appreciate the roles that each of these folks have played in making sure that we are pleasing customers to the best of our ability.

We have also recently added a team of three production guys under the federal H2A visa program. Their names are Hector, Jamie, and Jose, and they are doing a great job in helping to care for our animals in the manner in which you have come to expect from Watson Farms. During the period we were short-handed this summer, we never lowered our standards of care for our animals, but other tasks like tractor maintenance or pasture mowing were put off, and we are now able to give those types of tasks some attention again. This has been a great relief and will hopefully give us a long-term solution to our seasonal field labor, which has proved very difficult to hire from the domestic worker pool.

Many hands makes the workload manageable with lots of hungry chickens to feed.
