The mission of the Progressive Agriculture Safety Days™ is simple – to make farm and ranch life safer and healthier for all children through education and training. Everyone in agriculture knows someone whose life has been affected by a farm-related injury or death.

The statistics are sobering. Even more tragic is that these incidents could have been prevented if simple safety precautions had been followed. That's why the Progressive Agriculture Foundation is on a crusade for farm safety and health.

At the heart of this effort is the Progressive Agriculture Safety Day™ program, (formerly known as the Progressive Farmer Farm Safety Day Camp® program).  Founded by The Progressive Farmer magazine in 1995, the program trains and provides the resources for one-day safety programs that are age-appropriate, hands-on, fun, and safe for children.
