Reducing the risk of infection when visiting farms


Days out at farms are an enjoyable and educational experience; however, animals can carry infections that may be harmful to children and pregnant women.

When visiting farms please wash your hands and avoid eating while walking around the farm as bugs can be picked up by touching animals and fences.
