As farmers we practice enhanced hygiene and a farmer form of social distancing as we spend a lot of time in fresh air on our farms. However like the rest of the nation, we have a duty of care to help shut down the spread of this virus.
Therefore we respectfully ask farmers who have:- returned from overseas in the last month- have come in contact with persons infected with COVID_19- have symptoms including dry cough, temperature or difficulties breathing- generally unwellthat you exercise the Auctions Plus bidding option as we work together as a nation to stop the spread of the coronavirus.
On Bull Sale day our increased hygiene protocol includes:- hand sanitiser which we ask you use upon arrival and after viewing the bulls in their sale pens- disposable vet gloves in a range of sizes which we ask that you wear before entering the bull pens and dispose of at the end of viewing- hot water will be dispensed for you by the lovely Maureen and all tea, coffee, sugar, milk will be individually packaged and sealed for you to use and dispose off to prevent cross contamination- use only your smile as a form of social greeting and remain a safe distance from people at all times
We will continue to keep you updated via our social media platforms. In the meantime, stay safe, stay healthy and continue to practice social distancing with your smile being your social greeting for the foreseeable future. A warm smile does indeed light us up.
