    The way the calendar and the weather have fallen this year it seems as though tonight is going to be Guy Fawkes Night. Lots of people will be out celebrating with a bonfire and fireworks but for many livestock keepers tonight will be spent making sure our animals are safe.

    Generally it's simply a case of getting them into a barn or pen so they can't run around and get injured. Lighting helps as the flash of rockets won't be as bright and startling. Even a radio to try and drown out the bangs can help.

    Like so much in farming it's a case of anticipating a problem then getting ahead of it.

    The "gotcha" is when someone lets off fireworks unexpectedly and all you can do is watch and hope and pick up the pieces afterwards.

    So if any of you are planning fireworks at any time and you have a neighbour with animals of any description, please let them know beforehand.

    I'm sure they'll be grateful.

    I know I would.
