ASAP and Ag Week: Celebrating Farmers and Ranchers

At Farm Bureau, we understand that farming and ranching is more than a “job” – it’s a calling. Many farmers and ranchers have been at it for generations; and yet, others are new to the lifestyle. Whatever your operation, we’re in your corner and this March we’re focused on helping you improve the safety of your operation while also celebrating the work you do to put food on our tables and clothes on our backs.

Agricultural Safety Awareness Program (ASAP) – March 3-9, 2019

Across the country, county and state Farm Bureaus are sharing safety and health issues that the agricultural industry faces through the American Farm Bureau’s Agricultural Safety Awareness Program. As part of ASAP, March 3-9 has been designated Agricultural Safety Awareness Week. Farm Bureau Financial Services is proud to join in the effort to make farms and ranches safer for the families and their employees who run them.

Check out these resources we’ve developed to help you improve awareness of key issues that may be present in your operation:

Tuesday, March 5 – Livestock: Protecting Livestock During Extreme Weather

Wednesday, March 6 – Heat Stress and Hydration: Tips for Safely Working in the Heat

National Ag Week – March 10-16, 2019

We pause this week to celebrate everything that makes our farmers and ranchers a vibrant part of our communities.  Whether you’re a farmer, work in the ag industry, or are a consumer who appreciates the bounty of food and fiber found in our country, you know the ag industry touches all of us. Take time this week to thank a farmer, and commend them for everything they do!

It’s your future. Let’s protect it.®
