When fresh hay is served up to the herd it is almost impossible to get any work done. I have a list of jobs for all the agents to be working on, but when they here the skid steer coming to put hay in the manger they forget everything I've taught them. We have to focus on what we are here to do.
The Farmer seems to always stay focused. He is constantly checking his equipment to make sure it is maintained well. We have also intercepted his internet data and have seen that he checks his milk stats almost daily. He can go online and see the results of the quality tests on the milk being shipped to find out if anything needs to be tweaked or given extra attention. That is quality control.
Now I am dealing with quantity control. As soon as the quantity of hay is diminished I'll be able to get some work out of these agents. I'll let them eat now and enjoy it, then they'll be happy to finish their jobs.
