    Feedyard Safety Resources

    Cattle feedlots have some of the highest injury and illness rates within the agricultural industry. Those in the feedlot who work directly with animals are at the highest risk of injury, next being those who operate machinery. Injuries due to slips, trips, and falls are the most common, regardless of type of work. We know that working in agriculture is always potentially hazardous, but injury rates have proven that experience and training are important for a safe agricultural workplace. On the feedlot, a well-trained worker is a safe worker. AgriSafe is collaborating with Central States Center for Agricultural Safety and Health (CS-CASH) on their Feedyard 15 project that aims to reduce high injury rates and the associated costs by developing safety trainings. This project aims to provide training materials for 15 topics which include feed mill safety, chemical hazards, slips, trips, & falls, mobile equipment and more.
