Farmers Urged To Be Safety Conscious

By October 30, 2015No Comments

This is farm safety week and I am urging all farmers to be very careful on farms at all times. A lot of the heavy work for the year has been done but with cows calving at this time of the year and farmers feeding cattle using prongs on machinery and tractors I am urging all farmers to take care and make sure that they always pull the handbrake when they are stopped. Be especially aware if there are children around. Sometimes farmers take things for granted with regard to safety but one slip can be fatal. With dark evenings now there is more of a risk and I am appealing to farmers to take that extra bit of care.
