Farm worker dies while moving cattle

A farm worker has died while loading cattle in Victoria's north-east.

WorkSafe Victoria is investigating what went wrong after the 65-year-old was hit by a pen gate and fell backwards, hitting his head on the ground at a Yarrawonga South property about 11am on Tuesday.

He was taken to hospital where he later died.

It marks the second workplace fatality so far this year, compared to 10 at the same time in 2022.
