FRS launches new benefits package
The Farm Relief Service (FRS) Network has launched a new membership benefits package that offers farmers a 75pc discount on employing farm relief staff.
It costs €295 per year, and offers farmers a year-round 10pc saving on all farm relief and general staff charges.
However, the package also includes sickness and accident support to farmers who are unable to work their farms for a period of time.
The benefit entitles farmers to the services of an experienced FRS operator for up to eight weeks at a rate of 25pc of the normal cost in the event of accident or sickness.
