 A BUSINESS TRAINING FOR CATTLE?
' I have sometimes been very amused ', said Mr. W. S. Mansfield
(National, October 27), ' watching the efforts of successful business men who have retired and taken to farming. To start with
everthing is planned out so carefully. They draw up elaborately
programmes of work. I once knew a man who drew up a programme of work for his farm for every day a year in advance.
What is more, he insisted on its being carried out to the letter,
and would take no excuse. His poor foreman nearly went mad.
However, orders had to be carried out; farming should be run
efficiently on business lines. Not content with a programme of
work a year in advance, he drew up very carefully estimates of
his anticipated output. Every cow was planned to have a calf
every year on a certain day and was to give 1,000 gallons of
milk. Every sow was to rear two litters of ten pigs each twice a
year, and these pigs were all to reach bacon weight at 24 weeks
of age ; and so on and soon. But somehow or another neither
the cows nor the pigs would co-operate, as cows and pigs owned
by a successful business man should. It went on for two years
and all the neighbours enjoyed themselves enormously. But it
was too good to last, and in the end this Napoleon of industry
reluctantly came to the conclusion that in some way or another
farming was somehow different from other businesses !'
