Betaseed once again coordinated and participated in Progressive Agriculture Safety Day events in western Nebraska and the southern Red River Valley in late September.
The sixth annual event in Wahpeton, N.D., welcomed more than 150 students from area schools. Students participated in hands-on safety and educational training activities, learning the important essentials of many different forms of safety.
The fourth annual event in Mitchell, Neb., welcomed 150 elementary students from the Mitchell and Morrill schools. Through hands-on safety demonstrations and educational training activities, the students learned the important fundamentals of water/canal safety, as well as ATV, fire, grain bin, electrical, drug awareness and bike safety.
The Progressive Agricultural Foundation, dedicated to supporting youth agricultural programs, is North America’s largest rural safety and health education program for children.
Also in late September, Betaseed helped coordinate and participated in its third Project R.E.D. (Rural Education Day) in Sandusky, Mich. More than 500 fourth graders from schools around the area participated in the event, learning about agriculture, sustainable food and general agricultural safety. Betaseed donated bike helmets to all of the participating students who wanted one.
