Teens Wanting to Work on Farm Need This Course Now

NY State law requires farm hands working machinery or tractors be age 16 or over. However, Madison County’s Cornell Cooperative Extension, FFA program and Morrisville State College offers a safety course that enables younger teens to be employed.

The 4-H Agriculture and Tractor Safety Certification Program covers many topics, including tractor safety, animal safety, lawn, yard, and garden equipment. Completion of the course and tests enable 14 and 15 year old teens to work.

Course fees are $15.00 and cover the manual and printed materials.  And even though the first class has been held, you can still complete the course and receive certification from the Department of Labor.  But contact Chelsea Jones now to register,This program is a cooperative effort of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Madison County, the Madison County FFA Agricultural Programs, and Morrisville State College. Sessions will be held at the following locations: Morrisville State College, Cazenovia Equipment, Gold Star Feed, Empire Tractor, Kelsey’s Monanfran Farms, and Madison Central School.

For information on the classes, Please contact Madison County 4-H Educator, Chelsea Jones, at 315-684-3001 ext. 111.
