Event Description
Tractors make many of the farming tasks we need to do manageable. Without this mechanical assistance it would be impossible to be as productive or efficient while growing crops. With all of this benefit, though, comes the reality that tractors and tractor implements can be dangerous when not managed appropriately. 

Join PASA and Penn State Extension Ag Safety and Health at the Dickinson College Farm for this workshop on advanced tractor safety for farmers and farm managers.
Registration will be open until 4/9/2018 at noon.
