Ag Safety Awareness Program Week

LIVESTOCK

March 3-9 is Ag Safety Awareness Program Week. As a reminder, never approach livestock from the rear or you may receive a swift kick to your personal space. Cattle, horses, pigs and other livestock are not pets and can be responsible for many injuries on the farm. Respect animals and make sure they are not surprised by you approaching in their line of vision. Follow the hashtag #KeepFarmsSafe on social media and visit Farm Bureau and the U.S. Ag Centers online to learn more. Safety: Know Your Limits.
