Farm Safety Public Service Announcement

Statement

This week I highlighted the importance of putting safety first on farms and ranches. The strongest arguments made against the Department of Labor's proposed rule dealing with youth working in agriculture were that parents are in the best position to keep their children safe, and local safety programs are best suited to train our young people. Now that the proposed rule has been withdrawn, farmers and ranchers need to live up to the standard we set.

I encourage youth involved in agriculture to call their local county extension office to find a nearby farm safety program.
