Speaking to Newry Times, Hazzard stated, “Last year due to the severe weather many farmers suffered losses to livestock and farm buildings. “When some of these farmers checked against their insurance they found that they had not adequate cover to recoup the damage caused by the storm leaving many farmers out of pocket. “Those farmers, who were not properly covered still have outbuildings which have not been repaired and will not be ready to be used this winter. He added, “I am now calling on farmers to ensure that they have adequate cover for their livestock and outbuildings for the winter ahead by contacting their insurance broker so if we have another severe winter they will be covered.”
