What farmers and ranchers can do to mitigate the risk of fire damage.
In recent years, there have been an increasing number of wildfires across the nation, especially in California. These blazing flames can develop quickly and without warning, lasting for days, weeks, or even months. Rising temperatures and changing weather patterns are mostly to blame for this, and it seems likely that the frequent outbreak of wildfires in certain areas will continue to increase. While farmers and ranchers cannot necessarily prevent these fires from starting, there are certain steps they can take to mitigate the risk of damage to their own property.
