The final farmer safety session hosted by the Illinois Corn Growers Association will be held on February 1, 2013 in Bloomington, IL at the new ASMARK AgriCenter. The one-day producer education seminar will promote farm safety and help farmers understand current on-farm hazards.

Participants will learn anhydrous ammonia safety, U.S. Department of Transportation Compliance and Regulatory Enforcement, Oil Spill Prevention, and Pesticide Containment regulations. The cost for the day is $100 which includes lunch, conference materials, and appropriate safety gear.

“Safety and regulatory compliance will continue to become more prevalent in the agriculture industry. The Illinois Corn Growers Association continues to advocate for voluntary training instead of mandatory requirements and we hope that our membership will find these sessions of value,” said Paul Taylor, President of the Illinois Corn Growers Association and Esmond, IL farmer.
