FARMING today is very much a business venture and the successful farmer is the one who is not only capable of doing the manual work, but who also has the ability to plan the work routine and determine which of the possible avenues is likely to bring the greatest financial return.
For this, and many other reasons, simple but adequate records must be kept by all dairy farmers.
Many types of records should be kept but if a routine is followed, a few moments' work each evening will suffice to keep things up to date.
