Farm Office

Dairy farmers have a lot of daily paper work to complete and spend a lot of time in front of a computer.

You might think dairy farmers spend all their time outdoors, but there is a lot of paperwork associated with running a farm, which means lots of time spent on the computer.

For example, farmers keep accounts of the feed and fertiliser that they use, as well as maintaining health records for individual cows and calves. Some farmers also have computerised systems tracking the milk their cows produce or the feed their calves eat.

All British dairy cows have a unique passport which can trace the animal's mother, place of birth and any movements throughout her lifetime.
