Farmers getting ready for calving season are being reminded that a third of farm deaths last year involved livestock.

18 farmers died in 2019, with six deaths involving cattle.

The Health and Safety Authority is beginning a two-week campaign of inspections across the country this morning, with the focus on working safely with livestock.

300 inspections will be carried out over the fortnight, and farmers are being urged to take extra precautions on their farms around calving time.
