Progressive Agriculture Safety Days

We salute our sponsors! Strong partnerships helped Progressive Agriculture Safety Days® prosper in 2017.

Support from our sponsors has allowed Progressive Agriculture Safety Days to reach more than 1.6 million children and adults by teaching life-saving lessons in a fun, hands-on and safe way. Progressive Agriculture Safety Days is recognized as the largest rural safety and health education program for children in North America, Image by Progressive Agriculture Foundation

In 2017, close to 400 Progressive Agriculture Safety Days were held in communities across the U.S., Canada and American Samoa. These Safety Days taught more than 100,000 children and adults how to stay safe on farms, ranches and in rural communities through a variety of hands-on activities and demonstrations.

The 2017 Progressive Agriculture Safety Day program was made possible by the monetary and in-kind donations of numerous corporations, foundations, organizations and individuals. The total value of their 2017 cash and in-kind contributions has exceeded $2 million.
