Feel free to get in touch by sending me an email to the link below.  If you are interested in tractor and machinery certification programming for youth, that program has been moved into the Farm Management Program of UW’s Division of Extension.  Access Tractor and Machinery Certification information here.

If you are requesting support, information, etc., please indicate the nature of your request or questions, and provide information on the best way to reach you. Depending on my travel and teaching schedule it will usually take one or two days to get back to you. Please be patient. Often I can respond quickly and point you to documents, people, resources or other information quickly.  Thank you for your interest in farm safety and health!
