South Dakota Farmers Union Links Farm & Ranch Families to Farm Safety Videos this Summer

 – By

South Dakota Farmers Union, in conjunction with National Farmers Union is working to raise awareness about farm and ranch safety issues and best practices through a series of 10 educational videos.

 "Farming and ranching is a family business - which means parents and their children are often working together during the summer months. It's great way to promote a healthy work ethic, but we cannot forget that this work can also be dangerous - no matter how old you are," said Doug Sombke, S.D. Farmers Union President and fourth-generation Conde farmer.

 Sombke currently farms with his sons. He encourages farm and ranch families to take time to watch these videos to increase safety awareness. "We live and work on our farms and ranches, so it's good to have a reminder of the dangers so we can keep ourselves and the ones we love safe," Sombke said.
