Get prepared for winter

Many farm repair jobs are much easier when it’s dry, so checking off the to-do list before the wet weather arrives is key.

Now is a great time to prioritise what needs doing and creating a plan.

Start by assessing what jobs will become near-impossible on soggy ground, and make a time to do them before winter. These include fence clearing, shed repairs, retaining walls, laying new pipes and fixing stock yards – just to name a few.

Foreseeing what may become an issue when winter arrives is also helpful – are any trees looking weary or overgrown? Have years of wear and tear left some sheds too weathered to survive a storm?

From there, figure out what jobs will require a contractor, and what equipment you will need to get your projects underway.

Then make a plan and get ahead – you’ll thank yourself for it later.
