SAFETY AND RESCUE DEMOS

Farmers are at very high risk for fatal and nonfatal injuries; and farming is one of the few industries in which family members (who often share the work and live on the premises) are also at risk for fatal and nonfatal injuries.

Stop by the pavilion, visit the exhibitors, and take in the live farm safety demonstrations.

We want you to be safe, healthy and injury free.
