 A free farm safety day will be offered at two locations in July for youths age 10-16. The 2022 Youth Farm Safety Days are scheduled for July 14 at the J & R Family Farm in Troy, and July 18 at the Newmont Farm in Bradford. The events run from 9:30 a.m.-3 p.m., and include lunch. Youths may register for either session at go.uvm.edu/safety. The deadline to register is June 30. If requiring a disability-related accommodation to participate, contact Martha Manning at (802) 524-6501, ext. 449,  or martha.manning@uvm.edu by June 24. Four hands-on workshops will be offered. These will focus on proper operation of fire extinguishers, ATV/UTV and farm equipment safety, safe handling of livestock and basic farm first aid. Farm Safety Days are sponsored by UVM Extension 4-H in collaboration with the Northeast Agriculture Education Foundation and Cooperative Insurance Companies.
