Milking it

Well, this past weekend my twin brother and I (who is also back in NZ from Brazil) decided since we are such nice son’s to milk for my Mum and her partner on their farm.They havent had a weekend off since the start of the season so where overdue for a little break We had 400 cows to deal with.

I havent been in the shed for a few years, so I was looking forward to getting my hands dirty again. We the had the help of the farm worker, which turned out to be not the best option…

Half way through the first milking I went into the vat room (where the milk goes) and there was water pissing out of the vat,  I thought oh crap, someone has F#%$@ up something. The worker had left a vat wash tap on, so consequently about 8 thousand litres of water was mixed in with our 1000 litres of milk!

So we had to dump that down the drain and start again! Not to good for the cash flow…

Im not sure what is worse though, training with Sutto or getting up at 4.15am in the pissing rain and cold to go and get the cows in? I think I would take the training at the moment.  I managed to squeeze some training in between the morning and afternoon milking but needed a big sleep by the end of the weekend :) cowlicksme
