Growing Great People: Training Skills for Dairy Farmers
Become an Effective On-The-Job Trainer
The four hands-on regional training workshops “Growing Great People: Training Skills for Dairy Farmers. Become an Effective On-The-Job Trainer” scheduled in April by Cornell Ag Workforce Development in partnership with Cornell Cooperative Extension are rescheduled as online webinars.
The webinars will be recorded and available after the event. In-person trainings conducted simultaneously in English and Spanish will be rescheduled in fall. 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 and makes people feel important and involved, which keeps them engaged and reduces employee turnover.
Disruption to Key Personnel on the Farm
Developing Contingency Plans webinar
This webinar is free but registration is required.
Presented by: Jason Karszes, Dairy Farm Business Management Specialist, Cornell CALS PRO-DAIRY, and Richard Stup, PhD, Agricultural Workforce Specialist, Cornell Agricultural Workforce Development
Moderated by: Rob Lynch, DVM, Dairy Herd Health and Management Specialist, Cornell CALS PRO-DAIRY
On many farms, multiple people might be able to do, or train others on, many day-to-day tasks, but fewer can take care of management tasks that occur daily, weekly, or monthly. This webinar focuses on developing plans to backup people who perform key management tasks, from middle to senior management roles, if they are unable to work.

The document appears in English and Spanish and the content is the same, we will keep both documents up to date during the present COVID-19 crisis.
