    I’ve long said that the highest value time that I spend in my entire farming operation are the minutes that I spend observing. Whether that’s observing the animals, the plants, the watering system, or whatever. The Scots, as they always do, have a saying: “Tis the shepherd’s eye that grows the lamb.”
