Searches called off as farmers say thank you

Thu, 28 Mar 2013

Farmers are thanking the public for their assistance in locating missing livestock over the last week.

Hundreds of people turned out in force to help search for missing sheep and cattle which had been buried by the heavy snow.

Most searches have now been called off with farmers now using specialist knowledge and expertise to get to hard to reach or dangerous areas or focussing on their live and recovering animals.

A post on the Manx Farming and Food Matters Facebook page says farmers are “truly grateful” for the support they’ve received and that their losses would have been much greater without the public’s help.
