Minnesota Governor Tim Walz has proposed state funding in the amount of $250,000 for farm safety measures across the state. Walz says “too many families have lost loved ones to preventable farming accidents.” The proposal outlines three approaches to address farm safety. The dollars will relaunch the Tractor Rollover Protection Grant Program, create a cost-share or reimbursement program for grain bin safety equipment and conduct a farm safety outreach campaign.
