The Name "lazyJa3"

The name "lazyJa3" refers to "Lazy Jim's adventures in alternative agriculture".

My first name is Jim, Lazy jim refers to me. In this context I call myself lazy because of the way I go about razing livestock. I strive to avoid strenuous physical work in favor of having the animals do all the heavy lifting.

Specifically I will not go out in the fields, harvest feed, haul it into the barn, feed it to the critters, clean out the barn and haul the manure out to spread it on the fields.

At our farm, the animals must go to the fields themselves, harvest the feed, and spread manure around with no direct help from me.
