Calm your farm for storm season

LIVESTOCK can be at high risk during severe storms, which is why having a plan in place to protect them is vital for every farmer.

Here's a breakdown on what to do before, during and after a severe storm.

 

BEFORE

Keep an inventory of stock numbers and their locations.

Ensure all have some form of identification (tag or branding)

Prepare an emergency kit with essentials like halters, feed, any any tools you may require. Inspect your property for any potential hazards like loose railings or materials.

 

DURING

If possible, bring livestock to shelter or move to safer ground. Ensure there is plenty of food and water.

Keep animals away from windows and never leave them restrained outside.

 

AFTER

Assess animals and structures for potential injuries or damage. Clean up debris.
