    Personally dont think it's either, just the different strengths and weaknesses of each type of cow playing out as normal

    Silage Analysis

    Judging by the dry matter it looks like it was wilted and put away at the correct time imo. Protein is ok but a bit low for my liking and sugars/energy/d value etc are all low. The best way to "fix" that analysis is to reseed it with a new key containing red or white clover imo

    Exactly what I thought, you could put 10 rotary parlours in capable of milking 5000 cows but unless you have the land to go with it they may as well be worthless.

    The other time a good shout can help is when you find yourself repeating what you're saying far too many times! At my last job, I was there for 4 years and I'm not sure I ever heard my boss raise his voice apart from once. He was exhausted having just started up 3 robots the day before and had 2...

    It's a lot nicer to work in an environment like that as well. Theres no "fear" of doing something in the wrong way, after all if the end result is achieved in a timely manner who cares how it's achieved!?

    The number of young people I've seen over the past couple of years try and do a job and either cant be bothered or think they should be entitled to £50/hour plus a house is unreal. I'm only 20 but have seen more than 10 different younger people leave their job over the past 3 years in the 2 jobs...

    Again I agree but at £20 an hour they wouldnt be. That's more than double!

    I agree it's not fair but it's the reality of a job at Gregg's for example

    But remember for some young people, they're on £60 for an "entire days" work. An entire day being 9-5 with an hours worth of breaks (so 7 hours total), they dont like getting up early but are usually awake at that time anyway and would probably rather do 3 hours work as opposed to 7 🤷‍♂️
