NFU updated online guidance as heavy snow hits UK
In order to help its members stay safe and take the best possible action, the guidance covers several consequences of severe weather, such as missed or failed milk collections and blocked roads, and advice on gritting roads and working in low temperatures.
NFU President Minette Batters said: "Most businesses suffer during a cold snap and farming is no different. As many affected farmers will be trying to reach remote parts of their farms, I am urging everyone to remain as safe as possible and take the necessary precautions.
"However in many cases, it is inevitable that business as usual will be disrupted. The NFU is supporting its members to ensure that they have the information to remain safe during this time of severe weather." ■
