Safer Farm Animal Contact Exhibits
Keep Your Visitors Safe!
Own a farm that hosts visitors? Volunteer at the county fair? Operate a pumpkin patch with a petting zoo? Serve breakfast on the farm? Run a pizza farm event?
The Safer Farm Animal Contact Exhibits (Safer FACEs) training program can help you understand the risks of illness and injury from farm animals, and how to protect your visitors. This free, online and voluntary training program is offered by the Minnesota Department of Health. When you complete the program, MDH will provide certification that your organization has learned best practices for visitor-animal interactions.
LOCATION: University of MN School of Public Health
