VIDEO: How to stay safe when working with cattle

The following video, produced by FRS, advises farmers how they can stay safe when working with cattle:

  • Prepare in advance;
  • Ensure you have all equipment ready and gates set up;
  • Keep a barrier between you and the animal;
  • Always plan an alternate escape route;
  • Cattle can be startled by movement in their peripheral vision – Let them know you are approaching;
  • Wear PPE and suitable footwear;
  • Take your time – mistakes happen when you rush;
  • Have extra help – Never move or handle cattle alone;
  • Keep the yard clean to reduce trip hazards;
  • Be vigilant for signs of aggression;
  • Don’t think it won’t be you – Accidents happen all the time.
