Local farmers are again being warned of the dangers of quad bikes.

For decade’s quad bikes have been used within local farming operations, however farm safety group Farmsafe's latest report paints a disturbing picture of the dangers.

Last year 20% of all farm deaths last year were attributed to quads bikes.  With a further 15% attributed to side-by-side vehicles.

The most recent report will be presented at the upcoming National Farm Safety Conference in Canberra.
