A little time spent adopting some proactive measures now may save a lot of time and money should the farm experience an emergency in the future.

An emergency response plan adapted specifically for your farm demonstrates the “due diligence” you have taken in managing your risks and protecting your family, workers and animals.

Having a “what if” plan and training others to step in should the need arise is very important to ensure continuity of flock care and management. We have developed a selection of team
training documents to help you be prepared in case the primary farmer is incapacitated. These are found in the "My Farm" and the "On-boarding" sections of this website.

Although it is not possible to plan for all scenarios, the plans and activities that you develop will help to a assess and manage your level of risk and, therefore, improve your sustainability. Be sure to share your plan with family members, staff and service providers as appropriate.
