Phase one of some renovations in our office has resulted in considerable cleaning for the past few days. My resolution for the new year is to be more discriminating in what paper accumulates in my office. I do tend to save too much, thinking I can use it down the road in one way or the other. In all the sorting and pitching, I did come across an article from Chris Ringwall of NDSU on record keeping pitfalls based on their experience with producers submitting records for the Cow Herd Appraisal Performance Software (CHAPS). As we start the new year it seemed like a good way to review current procedures and see if any needed attention.
