Livestock worrying - It's heart-breaking to say that this is becoming more and more of an insurance issue, especially during the past year.
At FUWIS we have more than one company that insures Welsh farms, so the figures and information I'm talking about are very general and you can think differently for each customer depending on their policy.
We are coming up to such a busy time for farmers and it is so important that the sheep receive the best possible attention without too much stress.
Obviously during this time the value of the stock on our land is higher than normal and it is therefore essential that you make sure you have the right and adequate cover on your insurance policies.
It is so depressing that as farmers, you have to face the loss, but by insuring against livestock worrying properly on your farm policy, we can at least help with the cost of the loss you are facing.
