- Our Safety Partners
Partners of Rural Mutual like the National Farm Medicine Center have made a large impact in protecting Wisconsin farmers by providing valuable resources and supporting our farm safety initiative. An example is the Agricultural Youth Work Guidelines at https://cultivatesafety.org/work. This free interactive online resource helps determine when a child or teen is ready to safely perform a specific task on the farm.
Wisconsin Farm Bureau and Rural Mutual Insurance Company work hand in hand to make sure Wisconsin farmers have all the information they need to run a successful business, stay protected and prevent accidents from happening. Share these resources with family, friends and employees to spread the word about National Farm Safety and Health week. Together we can make Wisconsin strong and safe.
