Nebraska Extension’s Tractor Safety & Hazardous Occupations Courses will be offered at Gering and Gordon in June 2018, as well as and 10 other Nebraska locations this year for teens 14 or 15 years of age who will work on a farm.

Federal law prohibits youth under 16 years old from using certain equipment on a farm unless parents or legal guardians own the farm. Certification received through a course provided by Nebraska Extension grants an exemption to the law, allowing 14- and 15-year-olds to drive a tractor and work with certain mechanized equipment.

Casey Jagers will be at the fairgrounds on June 11 & 21, July 5, 16 & 24 from 4 to 9pm. Pioneer Seed donated the scale and will also donate drinks for these nights. Don't miss out!”
