Farmers Weekly Safety Tip Competition - April Winner

Wiltshire farmer John Prior has won the Farmers Weekly farm safety tip of the month competition.

Mr Prior’s tip is to buy a cheap roll of reflective sticky tape which can be wrapped around gate posts, uprights and doors to make them more visible in the dark.

“It occurred to me that we are working longer hours and often in the dark, but things aren’t always visible when you are reversing around corners,” he said.

“One roll of tape costs £5 and will probably do every upright in the yard. It would be especially helpful for night-time harvest movements.”

Mr Prior is a dairy, beef and arable farmer from Castle Combe in Wiltshire. His prize is a pair of boots from the Buckler Boots range.
