COUNTDOWN TO MINNESOTA FARMFEST 2019
Great Content shared often! If you are a farmer, this is the place to learn about how to keep yourself and your family safe!
Sharing UMASH's and other partner resources with our Gear Up for Ag Health and Safety students throughout the year makes our work much easier!
They have been important resources to be sure our "learners" know how to stay safe! Honestly, I haven't been able to find better resources than yours!
Being a farm kid and being raised around this stuff all our lives, we don't realize all the unsafe things we are around so seeing that made me realize that little everyday things I'm doing or around are not always as safe as I think they are.
