Please, Be Safe Out There

May is almost here, and the month will be crazy-busy for area agriculturalists. The late spring has delayed planted, so farmers and others involved in ag will face extra pressure this planting season.

Emphasizing the importance of farm safety to Agweek readers is preaching to the choir. They know its importance better than anyone.

But this reminder can’t hurt and could help: When people are in a hurry; they’re not quite as careful as they normally are. When they’re tired; their reactions slow. And when people are tired or in a hurry, or both, their chances of making a mistake rise.

Please, no matter how busy you are this delayed spring, be careful. Be safe.
