*CANCELED* Growing Great People: Training Skills for Dairy Farmers

April 16, 2020

*CANCELED* Growing Great People: Training Skills for Dairy Farmers
Effective trainings contribute to success of employees and the farm business.
With training, employees learn how to effectively complete their task and why it is important to the
farm. When employees have the knowledge, skills, and attitude needed to do the job right and
understand why it should be done this way it:
  • saves time and avoids problems
  • makes people feel important and involved, which keeps them engaged and reduces employee turnover
Develop your training skills in this hands-on w that includes brief presentations and interactive learning following a system of:

TELL: Describe the procedure and why it is important 
SHOW: Demonstrate the procedure and emphasize key points. 
DO: Allow the learner to try and answer any questions 
REVIEW: Are the steps in the procedure done correctly?

After the workshop you will be able to:
1. Plan for organized and effective trainings
2. Train in a way that works for most people
3. Measure and follow up to make sure learning happened

Trainings are conducted simultaneously in English and Spanish.   Activity groups will be in single language
or multi-lingual as needed.

These workshops are supported by a grant from the New York Farm Viability Institute.

Resources for Managing Overtime

Beginning January 1, 2020, farm employers in New York will be required to pay overtime to certain employees for all hours worked over 60 in a week. We've developed some tools to help farm employers consider management strategies to respond to this change. Tools include an excel calculator to estimate the cost of overtime and an extension bulletin to help you consider and evaluate changes on your farm.
