Progressive Agriculture Safety Days

Involving SAFETY in both work and play will ensure you always stay out of harm's way.

Who knew safety could be so much fun? Progressive Agriculture Safety Days are designed to be age-appropriate, hands-on, educational and, most importantly, FUN!

Lallemand Animal Nutrition highlights the importance of silage safety through a partnership with the Progressive Agriculture Foundation.

Lallemand Animal Nutrition and the Progressive Agriculture Foundation are teaming up to offer silage-safety education for up to 100,000 children and adult volunteers through Progressive Agriculture Safety Days--held in rural communities across North America this year. Lallemand Animal Nutrition is recognized as a 1-star sponsor of the Progressive Agriculture Safety Day program for 2018.

“Safety Days are a great opportunity for kids to receive age-appropriate, hands-on safety education while having a lot of fun. We are happy to contribute our expertise in silage safety to the program,” says Bob Charley, forage products manager, Lallemand Animal Nutrition, North America. “There is nothing more important than protecting our children. Learning the basics of on-farm safety today will undoubtedly benefit future generations of farmers and ranchers.”

With Lallemand Animal Nutrition’s support, a silage-safety lesson is now available for use at all Progressive Agriculture Safety Days. The lesson helps participants learn about:

> the dangers of silo gases

> safety precautions to practice around silage

> how quickly a silage avalanche can occur

> the difference between safe and unsafe practices around silage.
