Do you struggle with broken gates, delayed maintenance requests, and unsafe driving on your farm? Then come and join us for this *NEW* hands-on program where we will cover the basics of farm equipment maintenance, operation and safety.

Active demonstrations will be used to teach participants skid-steer focused maintenance, operation and safety best practices. Other equipment touched on will include tractor and feeding equipment such as payloaders and mixer wagons. The program will also cover basic roadway safety, common farm accidents and PTO safety.

The course will be offered in both English and Spanish.

This program is offered in cooperation with the New York Center for Agricultural Medicine and Health (NYCAMH). Sponsorship is provided by Zoetis.
