It is very sad to see a surge in the number of accidents on our farms. This year, there have been nine fatal incidents on farms. Three have involved children and five have involved people over 65. Eight have occurred during the Covid-19 restrictions.

There is a tremendous sensitivity in writing about this subject, but this is something we need to be talking about.
