FARM SAFETY – WORKING WITH LIVESTOCK

Farm Family, Farm Safety

Some advice to help you improve safety when working with livestock.

  • Make sure your working area is safe and has safety measures in place e.g. gate, a maintained crush, fences, etc.
  • Take the time to understand/know the behaviour of the livestock you are working with. Make sure they are handled by trained workers.
  • Always have an escape route for emergency situations while working with animals.
  • Always be careful around cows and heifers with new born calves and establish an adequate physical barrier between you and the cow and never turn your back on a cow following calving.
