Four teams were selected as finalists in the South Dakota Farmers Union Safety Quiz Bowl during the South Dakota FFA Convention. Those teams are the Wolsey-Wessington FFA, Platte-Geddes FFA, Hoven FFA and Howard FFA Chapters. SDFU Executive Director Karla Hofhenke says the goal of the event is minimize farm accidents. “When farmers get in a hurry or tired, that’s when more accidents happen. That’s why they’re called accidents,” she says. “We hope this will help young people follow through on what you’re supposed to do, even when they are tired or hurried on-farm.” The finalists will compete at the South Dakota State Fair later this year.
