And to keep your farmer safe out there, Kansas Farm Bureau has sponsored a farm-safety poster contest every year since 1950. This program encourages youth around the state to think about safety and use their brains on the farm. While it brings in a lot of creativity from local school children, choosing the top posters from the entire state is always a challenge! This year’s winners were no exception. Students did a great job creating beautiful (and witty) art to help everyone think about safety around the farm.
