New Hamburg hosts Farm Day 2012

NEW HAMBURG, MO (KFVS) - 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.
