From the day school is out to the start of the next fall term that is a long boring spell for teenagers. More of them than the public realizes look for jobs. Some, especially those that live on the farm, already have one. Now, these are the most dangerous jobs to be had. Somewhere in there work they encounter a varying degree of danger. It’s always the when the use of heavy equipment is required. Most jobs on the farm do. And dealing with large animals poses a risk. Chemicals used on a farm calls for, in fact demands, precaution. Any chain driven, or belt driven, equipment is an accident waiting to happen. Any work on the farm is hot and hard. Now, those who pursue it are all ready for school to begin. So, that you’ll know, farm labor is among the best paying jobs of summer.

That’s Agri View for today. I’m Everett Griner.
