I note that the government measures only "accidental" deaths when comparing agricultural deaths to general population deaths. They probably should take into consideration "drug related" deaths, etc. etc. when attempting to measure the dangers young people face in agriculture. I was driving a farm truck at age 12 and a farm tractor at age 14. It didn't cause me any deprivation as I later on graduated from college and got my MBA from the nation's top business school.
