The Central States Center for Agricultural Safety and Health in collaboration with the Texas Cattle Feeders Association, Moore Ag Safety and the Agricultural Safety and Health Council of America hosted a roundtable discussion designed to gather input regarding worker safety from stakeholders in the feedyard industry. The roundtable included workers, managers, owners, safety professionals, insurance representatives, veterinarians and research personnel. The meeting successfully identified hazards, including emerging issues, highlighted current training efforts, and prioritized needed changes related to worker safety and training at cattle feedyards. This webinar will report the outcomes from this roundtable and subsequent findings.

After viewing this webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Assess worker safety hazards present on Midwestern feedyards.
  2. Describe recommendations made by stakeholders to improve feedyard worker safety.
  3. Identify current collaborative efforts designed to improve feedyard worker safety.
