New Hamburg hosts Farm Day 2012


Nearly 300 high school students in southeast Missouri will participate in this year's Farm Day in New Hamburg.

Students from Kelly High School and Scott County 4-H put on presentations.

Other presenters include the Scott County Farm Bureau, SEMO Electric, and the Southwest Dairy Association.

Farm safety was a central issue at the event.

The U.S. Department of Labor estimates more than 250 farmers are injured on the job every day.  That's 20% more than any other private business profession.
