Beginning Farmer/Hobby Farmer Workshop

  • Saturday, April 27, 2019, 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Your farm might be small, but the expenses of buying and maintaining the necessary equipment for the farm can be quite large. Nonetheless, power equipment and machinery like tractors, tillers, and balers can be a cost-effective way to accomplish what you need to do in a limited amount of time.

This hands-on workshop is for beginning or part-time farmers who would like to improve their farm machinery skills, learn to properly and safely maintain their equipment to protect their investment. If you have been thinking about buying a tractor, new or used, two-wheeled or four-wheel drive, compact or utility or more come join us. Topics include: selecting the right size/type tractor for the job; basic maintenance; staying safe around tractors and equipment; attaching implements properly; and information about ROPS and SMV's. There will be time for questions.
