Agricultural Safety Awareness Week-Youth Safety on the Farm

Farms can be a fun place to grow up or visit, but a farm is also a place of work, with machinery and livestock that can be dangerous.

Children have to learn how to be safe, just as they have to learn to walk. Parents need to determine appropriate jobs for their children based on their age, provide detailed instructions and be an example.

Farm safety is important to all farm families and those who visit the farm. Make farm safety a priority for your children and guide them on a path to becoming a safety-conscious farmer in the future. Remember “Farm Safety is No Accident.”
