Plans for 2020

A new decade. Hope to build new milking parlour. Also need to make more time for me. Need to put in a few new roadways. Glad 2019 is nearly over. What are your plans for 2020?

Hope to give up the cows, getting too old for this dairying lark, life’s too short.

Hope to make my own carbon fertilizer and treat it with minerals and microbes and if all goes well maybe put it in the soil into the anaerobic layer to deepen the soil. Otherwise it'll be applied on top.

Wheels are in motion.

You'll only be finished the house and she'll want the kitchen changed!

Hang gates and fence. Install water troughs. Have to get in ESB into new shed. Put in base for bales. Buy slurry tanker. Loose weight and get back at running.

Start an Apprenticeship if i head home hopefully. Starting a new job out here in early january moneys not as good but should be an improvement of quality of life with the option to stay long term (visas provided as well). Looking likely ill be heading home though in the first half of the year and im absolutely dreading it, mad the way i could head off to this side of the world in a heartbeat nearly three years ago and the thoughts of heading home even for a holiday gives me the shivers nearly nowadays.

Farm
Finish what I started with a wet 2 acre field earlier this year. All drains have been sorted so get the heaps of timber and bushes separated for firewood and burn the rest. Then reseed.
Never done here before but hedges to be cut and tidied up.
Last of the fencing to be completed to make place 100% stock proof.
Replace fence around open slurry pit.
Increase slightly cattle numbers during summer months.
Work
Took over where I worked this year so just consolidate the business this coming year.
Look at possibility of taking on an extra person.
Pay myself a bit more !
Self
Loose a few pounds.
Keep as much time as possible for wife and 2 kids.
Thats nearly enough.
