    Email invoices

    I’m really childish and won’t pay an emailed invoice until they send a paper one. Normally the same companies that won’t take a cheque for various reasons. Yet when you send one it’s cashed less than 3 days later on a second class stamp.

    Too many ridiculous stories like that but I think things are turning the corner now . Friends Uncle tried forcing the farm to sell up and ended up having to put 600k back in. As he'd drawn so much over the years for cars, holidays and school fees.

    Brunning and Price pubs around me are still not all operating at full kitchen hours due to staff. They have always been sought after pubs to work in.

    Can you look at the prices after the fact? We have a lot of heifers to sell and I think the agent is low balling me.

    That’s what I meant sorry 10 days in 14. Tried to get everyone onboard with having fri/sat off one week and sun/mon the next but older staff weren’t keen. He hasn’t got it in him I don’t think. His main man just left mid thirties been with him for 20 years. I told him to make him a partner in...

    I’m more worried about our contractor having staff. He used to have three crews now he only has one on a good day.

    Just normal stuff trips out, farm merch, meals out when we hit kpi etc I've started dropping everything a couple of days a month and we will all go off to split logs or put up a fence on the other farm just to change things up. Other things I've done is the herdsman likes ploughing so I got a...

    No all live within 5 minute drive except two relief milkers that live 15 minutes away. In the future there will be an opportunity to build our own workers accommodation in case we need to offer it.

    We are turning guys away at the moment but I'm conscious of an ageing work force so I'm going to carry an extra man to drive a tractor next year and another to do some building work(which will probably pay for itself).
