Kubota Tractor Corporation Contributes $25,000 to Progressive Agriculture Safety Day® Program in 2012

Kubota will make the Safety Day® program possible for more rural youth in 2012

Birmingham, Ala., March 1, 2012 – Kubota Tractor Corporation is increasing its support of the Progressive Agriculture Safety Day® program by 67 percent. A Safety Day sponsor for seven years, Kubota becomes a silver sponsor of the program.

“Providing safety education for our customers and their families is a significant emphasis for Kubota,” said Greg Embury, vice president of sales and marketing, Kubota Tractor Corporation. “By increasing our sponsorship of the Progressive Agriculture Safety Day education program, we proudly support an effort designed to make safety education and training available for children and their families year-round - together, we can do more to educate about safety than we could ever do alone.”

“Kubota Tractor Corporation has generously sponsored the Progressive Agriculture Safety Day program for seven years, allowing more than 9,500 rural youth to attend a farm Safety Day,” says Randy J. Bernhardt, chief administrative officer for the Progressive Agriculture Foundation. “We are pleased to continue and expand our longstanding partnership with Kubota to provide crucial farm safety and health education for rural youth.”

Through contributions from Kubota and its nearly 80 corporate sponsors, the Progressive Agriculture Foundation is able to advance its commitment to keep 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. Since the program was founded in 1995, it has grown to become the largest rural safety and health program for youth in North America.
