Keep Your Kids Safe On The Farm

Children will do what you do. 

They are the “little helpers” around the farm. Kids watch, learn and start doing what you do. However, is that child ready – mentally, physically and emotionally – to do that task? An injury to a child, no matter what age, has significant consequences to the family. 

On Wednesday, Feb. 16, join Extension Ag Safety Specialist Cheryl Skjolaas as she discusses farm safety concerns for children and youth on the farm. 

The noon discussion will be held via Zoom video conference. The event is free, but you must register to get the Zoom link.

Skjolaas will cover the key factors in injuries to youth under age 18, how understanding age characteristics can help you decide on appropriate farm tasks for a child, and she’ll share ideas on how as a family you can work to make your farm safer.

The event is brought to you by the Farmer Angel Network which focuses on building strong rural communities that support agriculture by providing education, resources and fellowship with a focus on mental health.
