This week through September 21 is National Farm Safety and Health Week. University of Minnesota Extension Ag Engineer Larry Jacobson says it’s important to watch out for slow moving farm vehicles especially during harvest season which are out all hours of the day and night.

Jacobson says it’s also critical for producers to make sure all their equipment is working properly, they have shields and guards on.

He says to make sure and take frequent breaks to stay alert, and never go into a grain bin without someone nearby as accidents can happen very quickly.
