Farm Watch Coordinator's Update


There were 42 instances of animals reported as loose the highway this week. These were made up by 30 sheep, 5 horses, 4 cows and 3 pigs. Please be reminded to regularly check roadside hedges and fences, including those where a railway line passes.

Again, the biggest crime this week is theft of power tools, in most cases from outbuildings. Please consider fitting alarm systems where you have this type of equipment stored.

Kindest regards

Phillip
