Kentucky's Department of Agriculture says events promoting farm safety are planned at high schools across the state.

The Department says Kentucky had 14 farming-related fatalities in 2013, down from 22 in 2011 and 50 in 1995. On a percentage basis, farming remains one of the nation's most dangerous occupations, according to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.

The Agriculture Department's Farm & Home Safety Program is spreading the message about farm safety with events at Central Hardin High School, LaRue County High School and others.
