“Because of UW-Extension” Social Media Campaign

As budget cuts come rolling across our State into every aspect of our lives, we all know programs facing major changes in how they will be able to survive and function. The UW-Extension is no exception. As the State moves forward and decides where the cuts and changes are made, let’s make our voices heard. Join us in the UW-Extension Social Media Campaign – “Because of UW-Extension”.


Tractor Safety Certification

For youth under the age of 16, the State of Wisconsin requires them to complete a tractor and machinery certification course. This will allow them to operate agricultural machinery on public roads. Currently there are three classes being held that will fulfill this requirement. Please read through and follow directions to register and get signed up for the classes.
