    Farmers are saluting all the workers who helped them get through a tough year

    Farmers are saluting all the workers who helped them get through a tough year


    Federated Farmers has put out a big thank-you to the likes of milk-tanker drivers, technicians, nurses, shearers, firefighters and others.

    President Andrew Hoggard says Covid 19 could've been a lot worse for primary industries if it wasn't for the unsung heroes.

    He says farmers don't just produce food on their own - they do it with the support of people working in the background.

    Hoggard says meat and dairy processors deserve special praise for keeping plants going through the lockdown.
