    at the end of the milking season when the cows have bugger all milk they get dried of. this involves a long acting anti biotic (dry cow) injected up the teat canel to kill any bacteria in the udder followed by an injection of teat seal which is basically just a plug to stop any more bacteria entering the udder over the winter. when done correctly this prevents the cows from getting mastitis (infection of the udder.) while there bodys stop the last bit of milk production.

    Boy what a day

    Hop on the train bright and early, everything's going great. Have a little trouble finding where i need to go for my interview but make it early. When done with that i have 20 minutes to get to the arranged meetup spot with 300CALMAN, well apple maps sends me on a bloody cross country loop de loop to the total f*cking opposite end of queens st (unknown to me at this point) and shortly after my battery dies, 20 minutes of walking about trying to find someone who'll kindly let me charge my phone but apparently most establishments aren't too sympathetic to a scruffy cunt with a cattle decapitation t-shirt, eventually some french dude in a backpackers lets me use their chargers. Get the call over to 300CAL only to now find out i'm in the complete wrong f*cking place, so down i go to the other end, forced to spend the very last bit of money i have on a battery bank so i can figure out where the hell i am because nobody was helpful or willing to stop for 20 f*cking seconds to provide some quick directions. End up at the ferry terminal somehow, 300CAL is out of time sadly so we don't get to have that burger (not that i could buy one by this point anyways) Apologize profusely, fumble around trying to find the railway station and SOMEHOW make it home. Christ, i'm drained, broke, I suck at directions and i *hate* letting people down.

    On the plus side mr Gaped Axes' job hookup was brilliant, wayne at DeBrett thought i was the tits, gave me his card to send over a CV so he can find the best place to put me.
    Going to get friendly with the liquor cabinet now, maybe the tactical addition of vodka will make tonights instant noodles feel like a nice, juicy burger.

    TLDR: f*ck apple maps but f*ck yeah probably got the job

    probably should of mentioned its not a metal needle its a plastic tube like syringe and plastic tip and they have a peice that breaks of the tip that means you can only go so far up the canal where the milk comes out. doesnt hurt them at all.
