IFA President, John Bryan.

IFA President John Bryan has asked farm families to be especially careful when carrying out necessary farmyard work during the very stormy conditions across the country.

He said the dangers during stormy conditions multiply around farmyards, with older and younger family members most at risk of being injured from falling debris or swinging gates.

Mr Bryan said the severe conditions also increased the work pressure on farms and families without electricity or other utilities. He said they appreciated that repair crews were on the job.
