The only way that I could see the crop becoming more flocculent is by cropping early, or by attempting to harvest the entire contents of one's fermentation vessel.   

Mainebrewer, how are you harvesting your crop?

I harvest all my yeast from the bottom of the fermenter - a carboy in this case.
Transfer the beer to a keg, sanitize the mouth of the carboy, pour yeast/trub into sanitized mason jar.
I usually harvest a quart of yeast and then use what I need in the next batch of beer.
