ROCHESTER, Minn. — University of Minnesota Extension has released its new Farm Safety and Health channel. The channel includes the previously-released three-part livestock safety video series, a recently premiered PTO (power take off) safety video, and farm safety quick tips. Additional videos will be added in the coming weeks.
The goal of this channel is to promote safety and health on Minnesota farms and beyond. The videos can be used for many audiences including youth, farmers, agriculturalists and health professionals.
The videos are all shorter than five minutes. They provide a mix of information, demonstration, and discussion. Some videos feature testimony from Minnesota farmers that have been impacted by farm accidents as well as farms that do outstanding prevention work.
