We confirm that a straw chopper went on fire this afternoon. David Hay, our farm manager was on the scene and able to ensure that the chopper was in an isolated, safe area before the fire took hold. The machine, known as “big bertha” chops straw bales for mixing into the silage food mix for the cows. We thank the local fire services for their speedy attendance and getting the fire under control within a very short time. We confirm that no one has been injured, all staff and the cows are safe and further that no ice cream has melted during the incident!
