  • Usually we only think of wearing respiratory protection around the farm when spraying pesticides on field crops. However, when it comes to corn and soybean harvest time, I have observed the dust so thick that combine operators had to put their lights on to see where they were going. I am not kidding! It is important for farmers to use respiratory protection to safeguard their lungs against dusts in the coming weeks and months as they harvest crops, clean out grain bins, open silos, and strip tobacco among other seasonal farming activities.

    This summer the local Trimble County FFA went to FFA camp in Hardinsburg, Ky. It was the week of the 23-27 of July, which was a pretty hot week. During this week we worked on our communication skills, fished, canoed, made some new friends, team building skills on a ropes course, and even saw a hypnotist.

    We also had the opportunity to climb one of the oldest trees in Kentucky. The week was a very fun week. It was also a great memorable experience for our chapter.
