Emergencies involving large animals can occur at any time in any community.
Who do we call when we need help?
Agencies that deal with public safety.
Last week the Benton County Farm Bureau Women's Committee,
Benton County Cooperative Extension, Farmer's Cooperative and Purina
were involved in organizing a training event for our emergency workers
to learn how to handle large animals in emergency situations.
Experts in animal handling provided hands on training to
men and women who work
for our community fire departments, police departments,
and county sheriff''s office.
I'm thankful for the sponsors of this event and the
men and women who took advantage of
specialized training for large animal rescue.
