10 Reasons To Hire Someone Who Grew Up

  1. 1. 10 Reasons to Hire Someone Who Grew Up on a Dairy Farm By Philip Venzke
  2. 2. 10 Reasons to Hire Someone Who Grew Up on a Dairy Farm <ul><li>Punctuality – Cows need to be milked on time. At least twice a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. They will not tolerate lateness. Production will drop. </li></ul>
  3. 3. 10 Reasons to Hire Someone Who Grew Up on a Dairy Farm <ul><li>Flexibility – It’s not a cliché - Make hay when the sun shines. It doesn’t matter that it’s a Sunday. It doesn’t matter that your friends are out on the lake fishing or out golfing. The hay needs to be harvested and stored to feed the cows during winter. </li></ul>
  4. 4. 10 Reasons to Hire Someone Who Grew Up on a Dairy Farm <ul><li>Proactive – Again, make hay when the sun shines. Plant when the fields are ready. On rainy days, maintain and repair farm equipment. In fall, harvest the garden. There is always something to do. There is no such thing as busy work. </li></ul>
  5. 5. 10 Reasons to Hire Someone Who Grew Up on a Dairy Farm <ul><li>Teamwork – Everyone in the family has chores to do. No weekly allowance is paid for the chores – they need to be done for the farm to survive (see also “self-sacrifice”). This is teamwork born of survival – it can’t be taught. </li></ul>
  6. 6. 10 Reasons to Hire Someone Who Grew Up on a Dairy Farm <ul><li>Self-Sacrifice – Cows need to be milked - even on Christmas morning (“ and this will be done before any Christmas gifts are allowed to be opened” ). </li></ul>
  7. 7. 10 Reasons to Hire Someone Who Grew Up on a Dairy Farm <ul><li>Problem Solving – The tire on the tractor in the field went flat – waiting 2 or 3 days for a repair person is not an option (see also “proactive”). </li></ul>
  8. 8. 10 Reasons to Hire Someone Who Grew Up on a Dairy Farm <ul><li>Self-Motivation – The ability to wake up at 4:30 a.m. (every single day of the week, 365 days a year, no matter the weather) and milk the cows (see also “self-sacrifice”). </li></ul>
  9. 9. 10 Reasons to Hire Someone Who Grew Up on a Dairy Farm <ul><li>Positive Attitude – The ability to do work that no one else wants to do - like cleaning the gutters and calf pen. A negative attitude only makes jobs like these worse (see also “tenacity”). </li></ul>
  10. 10. 10 Reasons to Hire Someone Who Grew Up on a Dairy Farm <ul><li>Critical Thinking – Working with dangerous farm equipment requires great attention to detail and sharp thinking to avoid injury or death. </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>Tenacity – Stacking bales of hay in a hay mow filled with dust (in an environment of 100+ degrees). This demanding work would not get done – except with great tenacity (see also “self-sacrifice”). </li></ul>10 Reasons to Hire Someone Who Grew Up on a Dairy Farm
