Good topic . For relatively small farms I think it's trickier .
We only milk 240 and I have a top young guy who does a great job . Trouble is it becomes quite costly at $25 per hour , especially in the current environment. You wouldn't get anyone good for less here .
I have a friend who owns an 800 cow operation in a partnership with his brother so there is always one of them there when the other takes time . Quite a good arrangement I've often thought .
You often hear the negative with partnerships , but that has to be good . Get away and smell the roses for a bit .
This weekend l'm going deer hunting and the wife and son will be milking !
