Around 75 area third graders learned more about staying safe on the farm last week at a farm safety day.
Last Thursday, students from Thayer Central, Deshler and Bruning-Davenport met at the Hebron Sale Barn. The students spent the day exploring different stations that covered topics including electrical safety, livestock safety, ATV safety, grain safety, chemical safety and Nebraska AgrAbility.
Nebraska AgrAbility is a group that helps farmers and ranchers with disabilities. This organization is what helps Clayton Hergott continue his farming operation. Hergott coordinated the day long event. He grew up around agriculture and knows its significance in this area.
“Farm safety is important for our community and I thought it was something that hadn’t been addressed recently,” Hergott said.
