Vance Publishing is the newest farm media sponsor of the Progressive Agriculture Foundation(PAF) and the Progressive Agriculture Safety Day program.

It is the 11th farm media company to support PAF. Vance will promote the Safety Dayprogram and PAF sponsors in their agricultural publications Bovine Veterinarian, Dairy Herd Management, Drovers CattleNetwork, PorkNetwork and Citrus + Vegetable. The company’s agribusiness websites also will include a PAF blog this fall to provide online visitors with safety and health information.

“Teaching farm safety should be a priority for everyone in the agricultural industry, especially those with young children. We are excited and proud to do our part by teaming up with PAF and investing in today’s youth,” says Shawn Etheridge, Vance Vice President and Publishing Director.

Vance Publishing will help PAF advance its commitment to keeping rural children safe and healthy. The Foundation provides training and resources to help local community members conduct one-day farm safety and health programs that are age-appropriate, hands-on and fun for rural children and families.

“We’re very pleased that Vance Publishing will help us promote the farm Safety Day program and provide visibility for our corporate sponsors. Vance, along with our other media sponsors, will increase the awareness of and participation in the Safety Day program throughout rural America,” says Randy Bernhardt, Chief Administrative Officer of PAF.
