Extension offering area tractor, farm safety courses during June PDF Print E-mail

University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension tractor/farm safety courses will be offered at seven locations across the state in May and June.
One of the sites is North Platte in June.
Federal law prohibits youth under 16 years of age from working on a farm other than their parents’. Course completion grants an exemption to the law allowing 14- and 15-year-olds to drive a tractor and to do field work with mechanized equipment.
The course also is available for just the safety training if room permits.
To standardize the training, courses were moved to seven locations across the state this year instead of many local classes.
