Free Youth Farm Safety Day To Be Held in Bradford

The 2023 Youth Farm Safety Day will be held July 11 for kids, ages 10 to 16, interested in learning about farm safety through fun, hands-on activities.

The free event, which includes lunch, will be held at the Newmont Farm, a large Holstein dairy and pumpkin farm in Bradford, from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. It is open to both farm and non-farm kids from Vermont and neighboring states.

Workshops will cover safe handling of livestock, proper operation of a fire extinguisher and tractor, ATV/UTV and farm equipment safety. Participants also will learn basic farm first aid and assemble a first aid kit to take home.

The deadline to register is July 3. Everyone who signs up in advance will receive a free safety vest.
