Better to be getting up early every day than just a few days every weekWell the only thing with the factory jobs even if they do start at 7 it's only for 5 days or 3 if doing twelve hour shifts,so sure that's grand .
Compared to 7 days a week.
You have a good thing going there so Whelan loads of help !
So has any 1 heard of this 10 in 7 milking ?
Another good reason to get earlier starts, can get someone to milk before they go to workSurely there's someone local would milk a few milkings or whatever. A young person looking for beer money. I don't understand the focus of being on your own, you'll only be on your own if you don't sort out help.
Nothing wrong with exploring your options and I think everyone on here would agree .however a lot of very good advice has been given that wouldn't have cost anything to try out and you choose to ignore which of course is your right .I personally have got a lot of advice through the forum over the yrs and been very thankful for it .I wish you the very best for the future whatever direction you take .No I haven't my mind made up for sure yet but 1 thing I do know is I don't like milking cows twice a day and want to be in a scenario in a couple of years where I have no 1 to do any thing so I would be interested in the 10-7 or OAD ?
I know all of ye are sick of me by now but I was talking to a man yesterday that said I was doing the right thing exploring my options now rather than when I would be on my own .
This is the reason why basically every single business owner with staff should be able to justify their time being worth the likes of 50e/hour (worth I did say, not necessarily you are drawing this down, you might be expanding the business etc with it). But anyways the reason you have to do this is because of your ability to multitask against most staff, who will literally take 3 times as long to do the same amount of work. It really lets you hone in then on ditching the jobs which genuinely you can't multitask as (lets say basic tractor work like slurry, or pure labouring jobs), and you should be outscoring them 1stly, while you stay going at your efficient multitasking jobs. I include milking as an easy to outsource job myself, springtime I always have someone in the parlour one milking a day, they milk solo until they get hardship, while I do other multitasking jobs like feeding calves, nuts, lime clubicles etc.Another thing is multi tasking. Doing the mats as taking cows out of shed. Not standing at teat feeder waiting for calves to drink it all, bedding the shed or giving out meal instead. Etc
If the OP is truly depressed, then to do what he has done is fair going - getting in Grasstec, talking to father, visiting doctor, speaking with neighbours about a way forward etc... is good progress in the timeframe.The last part of the sentence you quoted is a bit much, most replies have shown a lot of patience but the rest is true.
Pick out whatever bits you like lad. If you read back over the thread, the op actually has two threads going with much the same content, you’ll see that I’ve been very supportive of the problem the op has. But at some stage someone has to speak up and say something truthfully which is get up two hours earlier like they have been asked to try maybe 20 times. So maybe getting out the bed is a better shout then drastically changing your whole life. Anyway if you don’t like what I wrote unsubscribe from the thread. Works both fucking ways.That's a bit strong. Maybe you should unsubscribe from the thread if you are being pushed too far.
