It's National Farm Safety and Health Week. The 2019 data for the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics indicates that the agricultural sector is still the most dangerous in America with 573 fatalities, or an equivalent of 23.1 deaths per 100,000 workers. Fall harvest time can be one of the busiest and most dangerous seasons of the year for the agriculture industry. For this reason, the third week of September has been recognized as National Farm Safety and Health Week. This annual promotion initiated by the National Safety Council has been proclaimed as such by each sitting U.S. President since Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1944. National Farm Safety and Health Week is led by the National Education Center for Agricultural Safety (NECAS), the agricultural partner of the National Safety Council.

Be safe, be smart, and watch out for each other.

Corn silage season always lends itself to some “you don’t see that every day” moments. This tractor driving above a cornfield, was spotted at Pagel's Ponderosa Dairy, LLC today. It almost appears to be driving on the roof of the shed behind it! This driver is packing corn silage with a tractor to create a dense environment that will not allow air to come in contact with the silage. Air in silage means spoilage and wasted feed. Farmers are hard at work right now bringing in the crop, so be safe out there, one and all.
