The Youth Tractor Safety Training was held Monday, June 9 through Wednesday, June 11. This is a joint effort from the University of Minnesota Extension and area High School Ag instructors. There were 13 students who completed the joint training this year. Rushford-Peterson High School hosted the training year. Brad Harguth, Caledonia High School Ag instructor along with Colby Lind & Kirby Schmidt, Rushford-Peterson High School Ag instructors worked together to conduct the training. There is a lot of work involved, lining up tractors, arranging facilities, and all the miscellaneous things that need to be ready on site. Classroom instruction, videos, safety demonstrations, and actual tractor driving were key parts of the course. Hammell Equipment of Rushford was very generous in providing the tractors and equipment for the driving portion of the training.

The students completing the course this year were: Dylan Buckland, Bryce Kingsley, Jordan Kleist, Dakota Stampka, Dustin Stampka, Joey Bradley, Trenten Kuditz, Timothy Highum, Austen Werner, Hans Lind, Jens Lind, Brandon Eide, and Josh Agrimson.
