Farm Safety Day Being Held This Saturday In New Dundee

The Waterloo Rural Women are planning their 22nd annual Children’s Farm Safety Day this Saturday.

Heritage Hill farms in New Dundee will host the event, with a focus on creating safety awareness with school-age children.

Board member Sharone Grose says the Safety Day provides a lot more then simply learning safety on the farm in a classroom setting, and notes that it’s important to get to kids when they are just starting to work on the farm, before they get drawn into bad habits.
