start with the end and work your way back!  for example


I want to produce an average of 10 boxes of lambs for sale in august, work on 100% lambing - 10 ewes to tup 6 month weaning  means lambing in february which means tupping in september, your dosing, foot trimming, condition scoring, and vaccinations will all run off this timeline

Don't wrestle with pigs, they will love it and you will just get all muddy.

Let go of who you are and become who you are meant to be.
