Fit for Farming

Fit for Farming


One man in five will die before he reaches 65. And when the average age of the UK farmer is 57, that's a fact you can't ignore.

The mind and body of the farmer is the best bit of kit on any farm. With a little care, the high-performance machine that is the male body will run smoothly for a lifetime with just basic maintenance and minimal need for spare parts. This easy-to-read booklet will show you how to fine tune your engine, choose the right fuel and keep your mind on the road ahead. We’ll explain the little changes that can make a big difference:

  • how to be good to your body
  • how to be good to your brain
  • how to handle the ups and downs

FIT FOR FARMING also includes details on all the common occupational health concerns for UK farmers from ticks and insect stings to asbestos and tetanus. 

The 40 page full colour A5 booklet has been developed by a team who know a bit about farming and men's health. Originally written by Dr Ian Banks, himself a farmer, it has been revised and redesigned in partnership with several farming and rural organisations including the Yorkshire Rural Support Network, the Yorkshire Agricultural Society, the Farming Life Centre (Blackwell, Derbyshire), the Farming Community Network and many others. The excellent cartoons are by farmer Henry Brewis. Edited by Jim Pollard.
