Earlier in the month, we spotted this article by the BBC on rural crime and how it has rocketed over the past few years. Many farmers have turned to ‘medieval’ type security measures such as forming earth walls and ditches to hinder casual crime.
Does this make you concerned about your own agricultural security? Whether you prefer to use older methods or modern security, it’s important to make sure you think about all angles and possibilities.
The best way decide what security is best for you is to put yourself in the mind of a criminal. If you were going to carry out a robbery on your own farm, what are your entrance routes, blind spots and how easy would it be?
By determining the risks, you may find that you can put some really simple measures in place to help keep yourself, farm, stock and assets safe.
