As part of our farming award we have been thinking about whether the use of machinery and equipment on farms is a good thing or not.
We thought about how machinery can make farms safer, more efficient and can increase the yield (how much is produced). We did see that this can mean there are less jobs for people but other jobs will also begin e.g. repairing and servicing machines. Running the machines.
We have been looking at how we need to be safe when working on or visiting a farm. This can include being around livestock, using machinery or leaving gates open.
We thought about the countryside code: Respect, Protect, Enjoy
As part of our work on our Farming Award we have been finding out about the types of machinery used on different farms.
Some machines and equipment are specific to the type of farm they are used on e.g. which type of crop is grown, whether they need harvesting by hand etc.
