  • Mindset – 5 things to condition yourself to reduce stress. | Target Focus Website
    do not get confused Use time wisely Do weeds and small jobs while the cows walk to the shed This will free up weeks of time that you spend fluttering around keeping yourself busy It is ok to have nothing to do Think big picture when you deal with your staff Are all the targets being hit Are your staff fresh or do they need a bit of glide time Address issues at the appropriate time and place when you have cooled down Free up a day a month for you and your staff to get off farm for a hack at golf or a fish or a shed BBQ Learn to enjoy your teams company because they are the people you have hand picked to make you money and help you reach your goals Always remember that Plan Identify what needs to be done and what is not so important Who can you ask for help What can you do youself What can you delegate Never underestimate the free thinking ability of those around you to find solutions Last and most important listen to those you love Sometimes it takes time to relax and laugh again if you have been under stress Value what is most important to you and that is your family They will always support you whatever the circumstance so listen to what they are saying Share this with those who you think may be under some pressure and those you care about Best wishes Ian Share this Twitter Facebook LinkedIn Like this Like Loading About ianhandcock Passion about Farmer wellbeing Personal coach View all posts by ianhandcock This entry was posted in Farmer Wellness Farming and tagged agriculture coaching cows dairy farming farmer wellness farming mindset new Zealand people stress Bookmark the permalink HIGH COURT

  • El Nino means El trouble | Target Focus Website
    be plain sailing later this season If you don t make the most of the spring this year then Mother Nature can t help you anymore and she will throw the usual curve balls such as drying westerly winds followed by insect damage amidst huge anticyclones just to test your determination In the good old days which isn t long ago farmers concentrated on getting 70 of their milk production before Christmas This means on a 200 000 kgms farm they would target 140 000 kgms by December 25th or thereabouts Because they were so focused they began to get each component of their business spot on which resulted in tight calving patterns high per cow production more days in milk get the picture The bonus was that if things turned dry in summer they had the option of once a day milking to ride it out which reduced grazing pressure reduced costs and so forth The problem we have now is that there are too many people making farming look like you need a degree to operate it well you don t You need to be determined conscientious analytical and a bloody hard worker Follow the simple rules of farming and you will be a success TIPS THIS WEEK Make the most of spring It may seem wet but while it is raining pasture is growing Use your production figures as your gauge of your performance 1 2 milksolids per cow per day for a Fresian herd is not making the most of things Rule of thumb is if you are leaving less than 4 5 cm of pasture behind then you are underfeeding your milkers Get on top of your SCC If you want to use OAD later on you must have a low bulk SCC in your herd Get the SCC under control during calving and you will be set for the season Use the RMT paddle or milk testers before colostrums go into the vat If in doubt keep her out Stick to your knitting which means manage your pastures well over the next 5 months and you have done everything you can Get your rotations right your quality right and you will have milk in the vat and silage in the stack If you need help then get it before it is too late At the end of the day don t worry about the predictions of summer just yet there will be time enough to worry later on Get the day to day stuff dead right each day and every day and enjoy the rain while you have it Best wishes Ian Share this Twitter Facebook LinkedIn Like this Like Loading About ianhandcock Passion about Farmer wellbeing Personal coach View all posts by ianhandcock This entry was posted in Farming Summer Uncategorized Weekly farm report and tagged cows El Nino farming focus lessons milk new Zealand pastures summer winning Bookmark the permalink Week two down on the farm Are You Kidding Me Succeed as
