Trigg County 4-H Extension Agent Janeen Tramble helps organize this every year, and said they’ve been putting together these farm safety days for the students for more than 10 years, although the exhibits themselves change from time to time.
“I like to switch it up. I call different people to see if they could come, and we haven’t had animal safety for a couple of years, and we haven’t had gun or firearm safety for a couple of years. I just try to make it different,” Tramble said.
People from the Bunge corporation out of Cairo, Ill., pretty much come ever year to teach Trigg County students about grain safety, said Tramble. They show how easy it is to get trapped in a grain bin or elevator, and how to get out.
Tramble said the Bunge workers are good at making their demonstrations hands-on, which she thinks is important when you’re talking to elementary students, although it can be hard to make some tractor safety demonstrations and some others hands-on.
