We expect you to follow the schedule and be on time. You must punch in after you are dressed and ready for work. You need to punch out before changing clothes. If you need and unscheduled day off, you need to ask in advance and be willing to work your schedule day off to replace it.
The cows need milked every day. We do not have sick days. Doctor excuses are required if work is missed.
This is a list of things we would like you to be able to do and willing to help us with. We take pride in our FARM and ANIMALS and expect your help to do the same. We believe in good work ethic, being neat and clean, putting things were they belong and keeping things picked up.
