DELPHOS — Bunge held its 7th annual Ag Safety Day Friday at Stadium Park with more than 300 area second-graders.

Students were bused from both Delphos schools, Spencerville, Fort Jennings and Lincolnview to the park.

“Safety is a top priority at Bunge,” Safety, Health and Environmental Specialist Kelcie Mikesell said. “This is the same thing we preach in the factory with employees.”

The morning started with everyone gathering in the stadium for a K9 demonstration.

Students were then broken up into 12 groups and worked their way through safety stations including: fire, lawn mower, farm equipment, farm animals, water, Internet, helmet, EMS, chemicals, electrical, grain entrapment railroad and parks.

Life Flight arrived around 10:30 a.m. and then students broke for a sack lunch.

“Even though we are in a rural area, a lot of these kids have never been on a farm or come up against some of these issues,” Mikesell continued. “We also added Internet Safety last year because of how much stuff is out there kids can get in trouble with.”

The day ended with 24 bicycles and helmets being given away.
