Juan Manuel Rincón Rodríguez is a Dairy Farmer

I enjoy living in green clean places not so far, not to close to big cities. I like to have dogs, cats, cows and horses. Sometimes gets muddy, wet and smelly. Outside most of the time. Close management is a must. You can't manipulate at will milk productión, genetics, fooder production or climate. Industry sets your Product price, expenses are high. You might have to work 24-7
