the paper trail

Just a few words tonight, all the animals seem to be improving, or at least in the case of the cattle not getting any worse. The pigs are fine and the 20 piglets are really starting to thrive. The ram’s foot is probably the least improved of all the ailments but we re-poulticed it and gave him some more AB.

It is the very long ‘paper trail’ that is taking up so much time and effort as Jethro inputs every ear number, batch number, withdrawal date etc, etc for every animal and every medicine we have used. He is tired, and he has worked late in the office every night for months. It seems at the moment that this is perhaps not the best way to live.

Hey ho!

  1. Sorry to hear you are tired and flagging. There will be another better day I am sure.
