“I never know what to put on forms which ask for my occupation so I’ve started putting various,” she said. “It’s true and it makes me feel enigmatic.”

    Years ago I got tired of being a “farmer”. I changed the title to “Pastoral analyst.”
    Sounds far more important but in reality I grow pasture, analyse it and decide what to graze it with…I have thousands of compatriots NZ wide.. I’ve only gasped once when I was asked by the local constablory whether I was still a “Pastoral analyst”…I was redoing details on my firearms licence at the time.

    In my favourite book, “For Better For Worse and For Lunch” a farmer is asked what he does, replies “I harness solar energy and precipitation to produce protein”.
