Date nights consists of viewing Rare Breed or CCTV footage of the maternity ward.

Ulster Farmers’ Union has listed a number of things that farmers look out for in a potential partner, or possibly some information you should know when dating a farmer!

  • Standing in the gap when moving livestock and not falling out with the in-laws;

  • Going on a ‘break’ over the harvest/silage period is essential;

  • Date night consists of viewing Rare Breed, Farm FLiX, the weather forecast or CCTV footage of the maternity ward;

  • Meals in the local livestock market or in the cab of the tractor;

  • A unique smelling ‘perfume’;

  • They are never on time – especially when it’s lambing/calving time or the slurry ban is lifted;

  • Understand all the farmer lingo and acronyms;

  • Under every field ‘name’ and back road – “The top field down the side road at Jimmy’s”

  • Learn the codes: “The one with the….” Or “the biggest one…”

  • Being telepathic is handy;

  • Become an expert in keeping farm records.
