Triton FFA Holds Annual Progressive Ag Safety Day for Triton Third Grade


Each year in early May the Triton third graders have a safety day hosted by the Triton FFA chapter. The chapter works Progressive Ag Safety Foundation who is funded by agriculture industry businesses to promote safety training with youth.

The day includes six stations at the Dodge County Fairgrounds in which the students learn about safety with PTO, ATV, animals, electricity and household chemicals. There is a station for students to learn about FFA opportunities that are available in middle and high school. Half of the third grade attend the safety training while the other half tour the feed mill in Kasson to learn about feed production for animals and then visit Go-For Holsteins in West Concord and tour a dairy farm.

Triton FFA would like to thank the following businesses for their contributions for the event. CHS Rochester for supplying big equipment and PTO safety training, staff to teach about chemical safety and for sponsoring the meal for the FFA members and adult volunteers. M and M Lawn and Leisure provided an ATV, UTV and skid steer for third graders to learn safety about. McMartin Electric covered the electrical safety station and taught the third grade about circuits. CHS Kasson sponsored a tour of the facilities along with Go-For Holsteins conducting a tour of their dairy farm. Dodge County Farm Bureau sponsored the snacks for the third grade. These partners were vital in making the day a successful one for the third graders!
