Click here to view the webinar

Join us as we discuss the topic of children and tractors, starting at birth and moving up through adulthood. We will explore what we know, what we think we know, and what we don’t know, including the risks and benefits of children on the farm, some of the common “myths” associated with children and tractors, safety concerns of babies in tractors, how youth can work safely in and around tractors, what can be done to keep visitors safe around tractors and equipment, and resources that can be used to help safeguard children and youth around tractors.
