Kilkenny to host major conference on farm safety

A major conference on farm safety is taking place in Kilkenny today with the aim of identifying dangerous behaviours and attitudes among Irish farmers.

The Teagasc/HSA event is urging all farmers to be fully aware of the risks on their land, with machinery a particular danger.

The Irish Cattle and Sheep Farmers Association says older farmers, who have not been to Agriculture Colleges, need the most attention.
