Everyone in agriculture knows someone whose life has been affected by a farm-related injury or death.
The statistics are sobering. Even more tragic is that most of these accidents could have been prevented if simple safety precautions had been followed. That's why DTN/ The Progressive Farmer magazine began a national crusade for farm safety in 1995.
At the heart of this effort is the Progressive Agriculture Safety Day® program, a one-day hands-on workshop that teaches children and their parents to stay safe and healthy on the farm, ranch or at home. Each year, Progressive Agriculture Safety Days® reach more than 95,000 children and adults across the country. We'd like to tell you more about this worthwhile program.
