Tractor Safety at Glenlea 

Tractor Safety Training                       UM News - Tractor Safety Workshop

On January 26, 2017, from 9am - 4pm, there will be a full day of hands-on learning about tractors at the Glenlea Research Station. The event will be held indoors, but participants will be moving between buildings for each learning station on the open-air People Mover. Lunch, beverages and a snack will be provided. A lot of great information will be shared at the 4 stations so you may want to bring along a pen/pencil and notebook for taking notes throughout the day. All participants are to meet at 9:00 am in the Feed Mill for a brief introduction to the site and day.
