Extract, 'Time Again', GB Farming

Another thought about time: farming takes a lot of time.

Simple activities take a while. To be safe takes time, and whereas, for myself as an artist, to be hasty and to make a mistake might only result in a cut finger from a scalpel, the risks are a lot greater in farming. When the calf was born two days ago, the nervous temperament of the cow demanded the use of a metal pen on the back of the tractor to catch it, rather than to just go in the shed unguarded. It probably would have been okay – it always probably would be okay – but if it’s not okay, then you’re really screwed. People do die on farms. So you want to be careful. All the time. So all these simple jobs become complicated: bring the pen – where is it? – behind X – move X with Y tractor – get Z tractor to pick up pen... A couple of activities like this a day, and that is your day.
