Stay Safe on the Farm this Summer!

However, it is during the months of June and July that things really start to kick into high gear, as farmers begin preparing for the upcoming harvest. Here at Tiger Safety, we have a comprehensive array of workwear and safety equipment in stock that is ideal for those working in the agricultural sector, offering all of the protection required at a competitive and cost-effective price point.

It's a busy time on crop farms too as June is when farmers begin the laborious but crucial process of haymaking, ensuring a plentiful supply of feed for their livestock over the coming winter.

Many livestock auctions take place in July, with a particular focus on the sale of new lambs born in the spring. On arable farms, haymaking and silaging continues. July also marks the beginning of the combine season for crucial cereal crops like maize and barley.
