Saving time

Time is money, especially for farmers. Working hard without much free time is the typical life on a farm. "Don't whine, just get on with it" is the motto as the work continues, from early morning till late into the evening. How do you make time for friends, family and hobbies? By organising repetitive daily operations as efficiently as possible, you can save quite a bit of time. Feeding is one of those repetitive daily tasks. Investing in the right feeding equipment can bring you significant time savings. For example, by purchasing a higher capacity mixer wagon, or by opting to automate. If you choose automation, that doesn't mean everything needs to change completely overnight. There are plenty of options to make just some of the feeding tasks simpler, freeing up time for other important matters.
