Agricultural Safety Awareness Program Week, now in its eighth year, runs through Saturday March 05, 2016.  In Monday’s Newsline,(March 04, 2016)  Marty Tatman, director of program development at AFBF, explained that safety is especially important as planting season approaches.
“Whether it’s the actual farmers going into the fields or families coming out to visit the farmers and ranchers, it’s important that we always keep in mind that safety should be our number one priority,” Tatman said. ASAP Week will highlight a different safety focus each day and provide additional best practice resources, as well as real life stories.
