Farm Watch Coordinator's Update

This weeks reported loose animals on the public highways has risen from 11 last week to 55.  This is made up by 30 cows, 23 sheep and 2 horses. Please ensure that you check your road and railway sided fields at least once a day.

Caravan Thefts

I have noted over the last few months 17 caravans have been stolen plus 1 attempted theft from farms, particularly where they are stored over winter. It is well worth fitting them with a tracker.

Kind regards
