The article discusses the importance of written operating procedures from farmers, as explained by rural management consultant Elaine Cook at the 2012 Dairy Women's Network Conference (DWN) held in Rotorua, New Zealand. She emphasized that getting it on paper gives farmers freedom. The problem, she noted, is that farmers often did not know how to start writing procedures for on-farm operations or felt they did not have the time.
