Earlier this month local farmer Philip Gillen invited all of us in third class, Scoil Naomh Molaise, Grange, Co Sligo to visit his farm.

His mum and dad, Anthony and Marisa, welcomed us and answered all our questions. We saw cows, calves, sheep, lambs and a bull.

His nanny Ann was there too and she gave us all some yummy refreshments.

Here is some of the farm safety advice we learned for the Farming Independent's farm safety month.

1 A farm is not a playground.

2 Always keep slurry pits and slurry tanks closed.

3 Watch out for moving machinery.

4 Keep away from the PTO shaft on the tractor.

5 Never trust an animal.

6 Always wash your hands after working on the farm.

We hope you listen carefully to our advice. We think it's really important!
