To mark Farm Safety Week, the Irish Farmers Journal launched a competition to focus on farm safety.

Farmers are being asked to enter by taking a picture of the farm safety change they have made on their farm and entering the photo into our competition.

The inspiration

The idea behind the competition is that if we can encourage small changes on thousands of farms across the country, we will make our farms safer and in turn keep our families safe.

It doesn’t have to be a big investment – a calving gate, a new cover for a PTO shaft, hanging a gate or erecting some safety signs around the yard – no farm safety change is too small.

We’ve kept it as simple as we can, and because of the fantastic entries we have recived we've decided to extend the closing date to 5pm on Tuesday, 10 August.

The prize

There are €2,000 worth of prizes up for grabs, with a €1,000 prize for the winner and two €500 prizes for two runners-up.

To enter
