Dairy workforce development to focus on workforce training

Penn State Extension

Part of Penn State Extension webinar series will be held Dec. 21

Dairy producers and other agriculture industries are invited to join Penn State Extension for another installment of the Dairy Workforce Focus webinar series at 12 p.m., December 21.

This webinar will discuss key steps to developing an effective training program on the dairy farm. On-farm training ensures a greater understanding of how work should be done, better compliance with standard operating procedures and fewer errors and mistakes.

The Dairy Workforce Focus webinar series is designed for dairy managers who supervise employees. Each session will include a guest speaker followed by time for questions and answers. The webinars will focus on your dairy workforce and will cover topics such as communication, opportunities to lead, train, and keep workers safe.  A roundtable discussion of dairy workforce successes and struggles on the farm closes the series in February.

Other webinars in this series include:

  • January 25 – Communicating with Spanish-Speaking Workers
  • February 15 – Roundtable Discussion: Workforce Successes and Struggles

This webinar series is free to all participants. To learn more or register for the December 21 webinar, visit https://extension.psu.edu/dairy-workforce-focus-effective-workforce-training. Registration closes on December 20 at 11:59 a.m.
