Changing farming procedures amid the COVID-19 pandemic

Agriculture, like the rest of the world, continues adapting to COVID-19. However, farm operations may have a different approach to changing their procedures during the pandemic.

DVM with Carthage Veterinary Service, Aaron Lower speaks with RFD-TV on a recent poll that stated that 73 percent of producers had no protocol changes, what changes some farmers have made, and what type of mitigation will happen once the colder months arrive.

According to Lower, “Most of the changes that are being made are in those more confined areas, like the breakrooms. So, staggering when people come in for breaks, spreading them out, implementing additional breakrooms has kind of been some of the permanent changes that farms have made in order to try and limit the spread within their working population.”
