Annual farm safety day held in Primghar
Iowa State University Extension in O’Brien County hosted its annual Farm Safety Day for second-grade students on May 13 at the O’Brien County Fairgrounds in Primghar. Ninety-six second grade students from area public and private schools attended the event, where they discovered a variety of agriculture safety guidelines.
“During Farm Safety Day, we went over grain, chemical, machinery, electrical and animal safety,” said Sarah Fiddelke, O’Brien County youth coordinator. “We hope these reminders will help them make the right choice when on the farm, around livestock, or in situations dealing with electricity.” Safety presentations were given by 33 Hartley-Melvin-Sanborn and South O’Brien FFA members, as well as North West REC. Farm Bureau and Baum Harmon Hospital, of Primghar, also helped sponsor the event.
