We all work around our farms and ranches every day without giving too much thought to the hazards which may surround us. I was surprised, for example, to find that farming is one of the most hazardous professions in which a person can engage. Accordinly, this month's topic is going to concern safety while working with farm animals.

Remember: Animals, like people, are aware of hunger, thirst, pain, fear, illness, and abuse. Treat them with respect!!! Properly caring for animals, understanding their behavior, and providing safe handling facilities will eliminate much of the risk of injury to them and you. Common sense and kindness go a long way.
