Police are reminding everyone that dangers need to be recognized and avoided for our children to be safe on farms.
With more and bigger equipment being used in our farming operations, we must do what we can to assure our children's safety as well as our own.
Before operating a piece of machinery, take the time to be aware of hazards or bystanders and always encourage children to play in a safe area.
