Despite much of the country going into near lock-down to combat the spread of COVID-19, for many farmers, it's business as usual. At times we have to be reminded as farmers that we are still at risk to the virus, and should be doing our part to minimise the spread.
AACo is a company that is leading the way when it comes to COVID-19, by publicising their new policies to tackle the pandemic. These policies have been implemented to keep their staff, families and company safe.
Attending sale yards, working with contractors, dealing with truck drivers and meeting up with stock agents are all things that increase the risk of exposure to COVID-19. Whilst these activities are integral to our operations, steps to minimise these risks can be achieved simply with minimal fuss.
Hygiene, communication and social distancing
Steps to take with staff and contractors
Farmers must be planning for the future:
On our family farm in South West Victoria, we’ll be taking these steps on-board so we can collectively get back to normality as quick as possible.
