Farm livestock emergency help 25 March 2013

DEFA has announced that it will log calls from farmers in need of emergency help as a result of the recent weather conditions and attempt to match them with offers of assistance.

DEFA recognises that the farming community is doing its best to rally round and its offer of help is to assist with efforts already underway. Urgent needs include animal feed and shelter for stock. Many farmers have had buildings damaged by the weight of snow and urgently need to find shelter for their animals. Stock in snow bound fields need feeding to help them survive the current conditions.

Offers of help can be made by calling 685844. Similarly, any farmers who need help can call the same number. Timing is of the essence now to protect stock especially as lambing is well underway. DEFA and the MNFU is working together to make the best possible use of resources at this difficult time.
