UW-RF to Hold Dairy Farm Safety Courses in Baraboo
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 01/24/2013
The University of Wisconsin-River Falls is organizing a pair of one-day short courses focusing on dairy farm safety this winter. The school's Center for Dairy Farm Safety is holding the programs January 30 and February 6 at the Foremost Farms USA office in Baraboo.
The purpose of the course is to help producers or farm managers develop their own farm safety programs and learn about best practices when it comes to protecting employees and family members on the farm.
Participants will receive a workbook with tools to assist in setting up a Safety and Health Program on their operations. They will also get a CD with forms and other resources that can be applied to your farm.
The forums will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Lunch will be provided.
The Center for Dairy Farm Safety was established in partnership with UW-Extension to help develop training resources for the dairy industry.
