Farming in the Shadow of Coronavirus: Plan and plan — and then plan some more

  1. Where does my animal feed come from and what supply interruptions could occur? Do I have sufficient on-farm supplies to see me through? What’s the lead time for ordering?
  2. What if I have to keep my animals on the farm for a prolonged period? Where will I put them? What would I feed them? And how much will that cost? Can I afford the cost?
  3. If my slaughter plant closes down, what alternatives exist? How do I communicate with my customers if my product may not be available?
  4. If my distributor or delivery service is forced to close how would I get product to my customers?
  5. If all of the things that could happen DO happen, have I got enough resources to be ready?
