Increasing production on the farm can often require investments in equipment to improve labor efficiency, productivity and profitability. Are you a farmer who is interested in scaling up farm production through investment in your first tractor or upgrading to a bigger piece of equipment? Are you a beginning or experienced farmer who wants to understand tractors better and to use them and care for them more safely and efficiently? The Cornell Small Farms Program will be hosting a workshop on the basics of tractor operation, safety and routine maintenance.
This two-day, intensive workshop will be led by Shane LaBrake, who provides an unusual and holistic approach to tractor operation, safety and routine maintenance. The class is designed to de-mystify tractors and equipment, empower and inspire, and inform "scale-appropriate" equipment choices and purchase decisions.
Classes run 9 am - 5 pm each day. Lunch and snacks are included. Cost is $75.00 total for both days. Scholarships are available for military veterans.. For more information about scholarships, please contact Dean Koyanagi at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Participation in the workshop is limited to 12.
