Easter on the Farm

The Oban Times - - Feature -

SPRING is in the air and Easter is im­mi­nent. And as ev­ery­one in­volved in the agri­cul­tural in­dus­try un­der­stands only too well, it is one of the busiest times of the year.

Up­per­most in al­most ev­ery live­stock farmer’s mind is the ar­rival of new life, with lambs and calves mak­ing their en­try into the world.

But Easter also marks the start of the open farm sea­son. With that in mind, ex­perts from across the in­dus­try have shared their tips on keep­ing vis­i­tors of all ages safe.

The Na­tional Farm­ers’ Union’s Visit My Farm Code is set up to of­fer pro­por­tion­ate so­lu­tions to ev­ery­thing from ba­sic best prac­tice to prac­ti­ca­ble so­lu­tions to de­liver safe and en­joy­able farm visits.

Start with an­i­mal con­tact ar­eas with clear sig­nage en­sur­ing all of your vis­i­tors are aware of what is ex­pected of them and the sys­tems you have put in place to en­sure their visit is a safe, ed­u­ca­tional and en­joy­able one.
