Some farmers are unaffected by the dropping temperatures, but if you live in an area that does get a bit cold this time of year, keep these things in mind:
- Wear warm, loose fitting layers, preferably wool and water repellent.
- Wear mittens, if possible as they keep your fingers warmer
- Cover your head and ears as they lose heat the fastest
- Stay dry
- Don’t drink alcohol which causes you to lose heat faster
- Watch for frostbite and hypothermia
