A typical day on an Australian farm
This will vary greatly depending on the type of farm you are on, but generally, your day will start between four and seven am. On dairy farms the cows are generally milked twice per day, around five am and three pm. Between times the tasks will vary depending on the season. During Spring – July to September – the cows will be calving so the main focus is on collecting the calves from the cows, feeding calves, animal health and assisting with pasture management. This is the busiest time of year on most farms. During Summer and Autumn the focus shifts to maximising milk production and general farm maintenance; repairing buildings and fences, weed control, applying fertiliser and general upkeep of the farm.
Other tasks include setting up temporary fences for stock, animal health, preparing the ground for crops and effluent management.
The winter is generally the quieter time for most farm types and the focus is normally on protecting the wet fields from stock damage as most animals remain outside during the winter.
