Training reaches out to Hispanic dairy workers

The National Farm Medicine Center (NFMC) and the Professional Dairy Producers of Wisconsin (PDPW) teamed up to provide training to Spanish-speaking dairy workers over the summer. The two sessions were held at the Central Sands Dairy in Nekoosa and Rosendale Dairy near Pickett.

It’s estimated that up to 60 percent of the dairy industry’s workforce is now Hispanic. Many of them may have had limited exposure to cows and large machinery. The training was offered by NFMC Director Dr. Matthew Keifer and Community Outreach Specialist Francisco Guerrero Silva.

 “The all-important dairy workforce is changing,” Keifer acknowledges. “Guerrero brings an essential cultural and linguistic skill-set to the Farm Center and will help NFMC keep apace of the changing demographics.”       

Training topics included animal handling, electrical safety, obstetrics, personal protective equipment, chemicals, and working in the heat and cold. The training sessions are part of the center’s new agricultural safety consulting initiative.
