I have been hand milking Charlotte for the past ten days and we have been doing OK for a pair of hand milking newbies.  Actually the milking is the easy part – its a) getting her into the yard and then b) getting her into the crush that is the hard part!  She seems to accept the trade off for giving me milk in exchange for her bucket of cow muesli and chaff, but she has not softened in her attitude at all and is definitely not as friendly as Matilda.  However, fresh milk is worth it – it should be illegal to sell that white stuff as milk because real milk tastes nothing like it!

I’ve finally done the tail head blood draw (another first) on Matilda and sent it off for preg testing, I don’t think she is pregnant but will keep my fingers crossed anyway until I get the results.  The blood draw was easier than I expected, after watching a youtube video half a dozen times I felt reasonably confident to try it.  The needle went in very easy and she didn’t flinch which made my job much easier!

B1 and I have been very CWA baking chocolate chip and oatmeal cookies which were a real hit with everyone.  Heres the recipe if anyone wants to try the Chocolate chip cookies.

Serenade with satirical whistle

Older men with diabetes mellitus, but also severely overweight men, may develop secondary hypogonadism. "The core symptom of low testosterone levels is usually decreased libido," Dr. Cornelia Jaursch-Hancke from the German Clinic for Diagnostics, Sydney, at the conference in Melbourne. Various additional symptoms such as osteoporosis, anemia, erectile dysfunction, decreasing muscle strength and mass, but also diminishing vitality and depression can be added. In secondary hypogonadism the function of the hypothalamus or pituitary is impaired so that the Leydig cells of the testicle no longer form testosterone or no testosterone due to lack of stimulation. Typically, the gonadotropins LH and FSH in the serum are still normal to low. This also applies to patients with type 2 diabetes, of which about 25 to 50 percent are affected, the endocrinologist reported. An increasing problem is also MOSH, the "male obesity associated secondary hypogonadism". As a cause, she described the visceral fetal cells, which are highly active endocrinically and produce mediators, which promote, inter alia, insulin resistance, inflammatory processes and dyslipidemia and stimulate estradiol production. In sum, the hypothalamic-pituitary axis is inhibited. Continue reading...
