Mahoning County Lunch and Learn

Mahoning County February 2016 Lunch & Learn will be this Friday, Feb. 5.  February’s topic will focus on farm safety and count toward the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation safety training requirements.

Key speakers will be Dee Jepsen and Loren Noel.  Jepsen, OSU Extension Farm Safety Specialist, will speak on dealing with noise on the farm and your aching back!  Her personal demeanor and work on her family’s farm make her presentation adaptable and fun. You’ll be sure to take home ideas to make your family farm better and safer. Noel, from Deerfield Farms, will speak about the hazards of dust and controlling dust in certain situations on the farm.

The program begins at 11 am and takes place at Mill Creek MetroParks Farm McMahon Hall in Canfield. There is a $5 fee for lunch, payable at the door.  Please call the Extension office to make reservations, 330-533-5538.
