Easter on the Farm
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.
