Pink sky in the morning is a shepherds warning, but today I’d like to give a little warning of my own.
This time last year in New Zealand we had five deaths on farm. That’s five families that are absolutely heartbroken this year as they are forced to relive the tragic events that struck their families and wider communities last year.
I implore you to please be safe right now, everyone’s getting tired and slow. Please think about safety on the farm, on your bike – wear your helmet. It is easy to get busy and forget, but we simply have to stop and think about it.
We had Father’s Day yesterday so let’s make sure those dads get home okay. And It’s not just the young guys it is the older farmers too. Be safe, and live.
“She’ll be right” is not the kind of conversation we want to be having right now. Let’s focus on safety, and get home safe tonight.
