    Staff salary vs hourly

    I think a salary is probably only really relevant if your paying significantly above the minimum wage. It might be useful now if you think this person has hopefully got a long term future with you in which case you could join offering the salary with a 10-20% pay rise.

    As long as you have paperwork showing your paying for electric you will be fine. If the other company hasn't been billing you there could be another electric company fudge up when things might not be so simple.

    Gentry would imply in my mind that we were handed it. In that case your completely wrong, both of have created our own destiny and wealth but we were lucky enough to have family farming in the background.

    antibiotic failures appeals

    The incorrect use of antibiotics unfortunately is a demonstration of the reason we unfortunately need things like arla 360 so our supermarkets and customers can have trust in us. If you can show me the page in your herd health plan signed off by your vet that recommends the use of a dry cow...

    Milk price - for budgeting

    Yes but nobody is ever really certain of what stock they actually hold. Just because we don't actually sell them much wouldn't make any difference if world price fell.

    Milk price - for budgeting

    Milk price can go down anytime China pauses buying. It now quite often goes down in autumn just as New Zealand comes on stream. It is a mistake to think the UK seasonal supply any longer has much influence on when prices move.
