How to manage as an "Absentee" farmer
I'm about to commence operations on a layer-poultry farm (5,000-bird take-off). Owing to the nature of my job i can not afford to be there expt for weekends.

I'm aware this is a challenge, but every challenge is summountable.

What practical steps do you advise i take to succees as absentee farmer.

Please advise
Trust. The manager should be someone you trust. You must make sure they keep written record of everything that happens in the farm - mortality, vaccination, feed bought or formulated, etc. Workers should not carry bags into the farm, they should keep it somewhere in a house by the gate and they should be searched b4 they go out. Some workers can crack eggs and pour into colored bottles or flasks, so beware.
