I worked on a farm where we went to work at 1 am starting milking at 2 then came back at noon and started to milk at 2 in the afternoon.
That gave us 12 hours in between
we did chores before and after
Now granted the farm was a rich persons "hobby"
We were profitable however.
We were also the number 1 herd in the world for that breed - Ayshires
No 1 for highest production herd. We also had the world record producer for the breed as well.
We had a kid from Canada one time and he said he swore and other farmers did as well, that we were giving the cows drugs to produce that high.
He learned that we did not, we just used good herd management techniques.
