As the effects of COVID-19 become more apparent and further restrictions are put in place – keeping yourself, family and staff safe is key. Whilst most farm visits will have stopped, there will be some essential visitors to your farm – your vet, for instance. So, what do you need to do to ensure, your visitors’ safety and the safety of people on your farm?

Before the visit:

  • It is your responsibility to let any visitors know if you or anyone on the farm is showing symptoms of COVID-19 (– if this is the case, no-one should come in contact with the visitor when they are on farm. If assistance is needed, such as to restrain an animal, ask them to bring another member of staff as support)
  • Tell them if there are any vulnerable people present on farm

During the visit: (keeping outside where possible)

  • OBSERVE SOCIAL DISTANCING standing at least one cow length away at all times
  • Only one person should undertake the visitor interaction
  • Do not invite visitors into you house

Above all, stay safe!

Telephone Support – Don’t forget, as part of the dairy insight Service, we offer free of charge telephone support for practical advice on dairy farming issues.

We are always happy to speak to our Farmer Members, so please call 01458 851555 with any questions.
