Farming is a noble profession, but it can sometimes be a dangerous one as well. According to a 1990 report from the National Safety Council, farm accidents and other work-related health problems claim as many as 1,300 lives and cause 120,000 injuries a year. Have you ever been injured on the farm? Please share your experience in the interest of promoting farm safety — perhaps you can keep it from happening to someone else.
