Each one of us has been impacted in some way by an accident, injury or fatality that has occurred on the farm/ranch. These events are devastating to our communities and affect the livelihoods of those we know and love dearly.

In an effort to start the conversation and create a behavior change to keep safety as the number one priority on the farm, Emily Krekelberg, Farm Safety and Health Educator with the University of Minnesota Extension, and Angie Johnson, NDSU Extension Farm and Ranch Safety Coordinator are excited to bring you and your community the Farm Safety Webinar Series in 2021.

Starting in January and going through March, we will be featuring five webinars that focus on multiple facets of the farm/ranch, including the following topics:

  • Grain Bin Safety – January 21
  • Tractor and Equipment Safety – February 4
  • Youth Farm Safety – February 18
  • Livestock Safety – March 4
  • QPR (Question, Persuade, Refer) Suicide Prevention – March 18

All webinars start at 11 a.m. CST.

Topics will contain live panelists including producers, university specialists, emergency personnel, industry experts - just to name a few) from North Dakota and Minnesota.

Panelists will be addressing the topics of: tough conversations; Stop, Think, Act; how to incorporate safety into your operation; understanding age appropriate tasks on the farm; and becoming prepared to help someone who may be contemplating suicide.

This webinar series is for everyone! Participants must pre-register for the webinar series, using the link: z.umn.edu/FarmSafetyWebinars.
