Letter to the Editor

I loved reading your article on Farm Safety. However, it should have addressed all age groups. Fatigue is also a major contributor to accidents. The young guys think they can keep going, while working long hours and getting little sleep. My husband was killed in a farm accident when he was 38. Safety should be on everyone's mind year round.
