Farm Bureau Ag Safety and Awareness Week


American Farm Bureau is promoting its Ag Safety Awareness Program this week.

Minnesota Farm Bureau promotion and education chair Steve Schoenfeld says fire safety is a timely theme with conditions being dry and windy in many areas.

“Just yesterday there was a wildfire burning northeast of Waseca (where Schoenfeld is from), and it consumed about 1,000 acres of wildlife and marsh area. And a couple structures were lost in this fire also.”

The other themes this week are animal safety, eye safety, the cost of safety equipment, and tick and Lyme Disease awareness.
