ICMSA advise Longford farmers to consider bringing in young stock as extreme cold snap forecast

The Deputy President of ICMSA, Lorcan McCabe, has appealed to the farming community and the wider general public to take extra care over the next few days as the county looks set to be gripped by extremely cold weather.

Mr McCabe said that the potential for danger and farm accidents increased in these kinds of conditions and that farmers must be vigilant on their own families’ behalves and particularly on behalf of elderly neighbours who may well become anxious as the extreme cold snap hits.

He also recommended that farmers consider bringing in young stock and monitoring particularly water pumps.
