Protect your children

Every year more than 100 children are killed and 100,000 are seriouslyinjured in agricultural accidents. Oftentimes these accidents happenbecause parents underestimate the complexity of the jobs that they allowtheir children to tackle or they overestimate their children's capabilities.

Now, under the direction of the National Children's Center for Rural andAgricultural Health and Safety, a team of ag safety specialists hasdeveloped a series of booklets that describe the abilities, training andsupervision children need before they attempt various agricultural tasks.Price: one booklet, $6.75; Parent Collection (six booklets), $59.
