English ProverbHaste makes waste
The farmer is rounding up animals to send them to market. It is important to send each type to the right place. If he does his job properly, all the animals will be sorted correctly. If he is rushing the job, doing it in a perfunctory manner, he will tend to mix some of them up, put a goat in with the sheep. That is the meaning of this saying, to do something in a perfunctory way, not taking enough care to do it properly.
