Area youth will soon have the opportunity to participate in an area Youth Safety Day on June 4th in Mexico.

University of Missouri Extension has teamed up with Progressive Agriculture Foundation to offer safety training for youth ages 8 to 13. The program targets youth that visit their friends and relatives on the farm and youth that live on the farm. Most of the topics will be of interest to all youth no matter where they live and visit and all are welcome. The safety topics will include: electricity, grain bins, firearms, hidden hazards, home alone danger, lawn equipment, tractors and power take-offs, ATVs, weather and emergencies.

All participants must be pre-registered by May 31st. Call the University Extension center for more information 573-581-3231 or visit to download a brochure with registration form.

The Safety Day begins at 3:45 p.m. and will end about 8:15 p.m. Participants will receive supper and a T-shirt.

Adults and older youth (14 yrs and older) are invited and needed as volunteers at the event. They need to contact the extension center by June 1st for more information.

This program is just one of more than 350 Youth Safety Days that will be offered across the United States and Canada. These safety programs are possible due to many local agribusinesses and national sponsors including Bunge North America, Crop Production Services, Agrium, Farm Credit, CHS and CHS Foundation, John Deere, Monsanto, The Mosaic Company Foundation, Pioneer Hi-Bred, a DuPont Company, Toyota, Novus International and many more companies.

University of Missouri Extension programs and this Youth Safety Day training are open to all interested persons.
