Farms and ranches are wonderful places for children and youth to live, work and play. However, agriculture is one of our most hazardous occupations and the only worksite where children of any age can legally be present.

At the conclusion of the training:
- Describe the benefits and risks of growing up on a farm
- Identify effective safety policies and strategies
- Identify resources and organizations that can work together to promote farm safety
