Growing Great People: Training Skills for Dairy Farmers

Cornell Cooperative Extension

Become an Effective On-The-Job Trainer

Cornell Ag Workforce Development in partnership with Cornell Cooperative Extension is offering a series of four hands-on regional training workshops “Growing Great People: Training Skills for Dairy Farmers. Become an Effective On-The-Job Trainer” in April. Trainings are conducted simultaneously in English and Spanish. Activity groups will be in single language or multi-lingual as needed. Cost is $20 per person and includes lunch. Bring a standard operating procedure (SOP) from your farm.

Effective trainings contribute to success of employees and the farm business. With training employees learn how to best complete their task and why it is important to the farm’s success.

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

The workshops will included 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

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