Minnesota Farmer

Think Safety

September is National Farm Safety Month.  Each year an alarming number of people are hurt or killed on the farm, many of them children, and many of them visitors to the farm.  Please be careful out there.

Each year the University of Minnesota Experiment Station at  Lamberton holds its Elementary Field Day.  A part of that field day is the farm safety demonstration.  I have been pleased to be a presenter on farm safety both last year and this.  I especially like to talk about the things I’ve done that were not exactly safe and that I somehow survived intact.  After 40 years as a farmer. I’ve had more than one close brush with danger.  It’s important that children hear those stories so that they know there is a reason that we keep reminding them to be careful.

It is a priority for Farm Bureau to be part of these presentations.  We want everyone to be aware that, if you do not think, you could get hurt or killed.  One moment of inattention and it is all over.
