When the vets left last night, Holly’s teat canal was able to be opened and was functional when open (well functional in that there were now two holes instead of one which will most likely be permanent).  Talk about dedicated individuals – they were here fro nearly two hours and it was well after 8pm […]

Our second week with Holly started off great with a gradual increase in milk production and a big increase in cream line after I switched to completely milking out the biggest producing quarter (her right rear) and partially milking the left quarters, leaving the right front full for Bangers.  Holly’s behaviour, demeanour and temperament is […]

I love the curiosity of the other residents whenever we bring an new addition onto the farm.  The dexters, particularly T-Bone were not particularly impressed about not being able to get through the gate to meet the newcomers. I seperated Bangers and our still un-named jersey for the night so that I could milk her […]

I’ve been looking through my photos for some that show how the paddocks are doing – definitely been eaten down in the past month so it will be time to start feeding hay in the near future. And one of a litter of rescued orphaned feral farm cats that a friend is helping to raise.  […]

Today we managed to get a few spots of rain, just enough to wet the horses, but not enough to wet the ground unfortunately.  The clouds around us looked so promising, but the rain just slid right on past us.  These photos show how brown and dry everything is at this time of year, but […]

There is no better way to start the day than watching the sunrise at 5.51 in the morning! But it was certainly warmer later in the day!  We’ve got a lot more cape weed growing this year, as well as more clover, rye and barley grass.  In the second paddock we actually have a lot […]

The reality of life can sometimes be a little overwhelming and occasionallys its nice to just forget the things that make life complicated and have a little fun, especially if it will make the kids laugh.  I guess one of the side effects of G’s illness is that we do appreciate the little things in […]

Well here it is the day before Christmas Eve, this year has seemed to simultaneously stretch for eternity *and* move at warp speed…some days the contradiction really plays with your mind! I’m not sure if I can even remember what I wanted to right about since my last post… Settlement on both properties went smoothly […]

Made the long haul trip up to Pinjarra and back to collect Billy who officially retired from racing last Friday. He is in beautiful racing condition, just needs to put on some ‘hack fat’ to round out his athletes body. He is a gorgeous boy, very affectionate and HUGE! Getting on him is going to […]

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...
