Announcement: Basic Tractor Maintenance for Women

An announcement from NOFA-NY:

Basic Tractor Maintenance for Women

Date: August 31, 2010
Location: Oechsner Farms, 1045 Trumbulls Corners Rd. Newfield (Tompkins County)
Time: 5:00pm-7:30pm

Thor Oechsner taught diesel and heavy equipment mechanics for seven years, operated his own repair shop and is now an organic field crop farmer in Newfield, NY. Join him, and a cohort of women in agriculture, to learn about the basics of preventative tractor maintenance. You will discuss different oils, oil change intervals and other maintenance that will keep your tractor running smoothly through the season. When you register, take a moment to tell us what you most want from this class, so Thor can tailor the instruction appropriately! Supported by the USDA Beginning Farmer and Rancher Project Grant Program.
