Sheep farming dangers to health
Some farmers in Somerset and the south west of Britain have reported ill health, which they believe to have stemmed from the UK government’s compulsory sheep dipping programmes in the 1980s when organophosphate was used in the dip. Handling these chemicals must be done with care, and protective clothing should be worn.Open Claim Calculator
There are also zoonoses (diseases which can be transferred from animals to humans) for sheep farmers to be concerned about, and although sheep are not as heavy as cows, they can knock you over and do you some harm if they hit you.
Farming of any kind has its inherent dangers, and is one of the most dangerous sectors of industry according to the Health and Safety Executive’s statistics. It is by no means the idyllic way of life that some people might imagine.
