“We’ve transitioned the event online” seems to be the norm for the time being. This year, Minnesota Farmfest moved their programming online. UMASH and the Minnesota Safety Council co-hosted a panel on August 4, 2020, Staying Safe and Staying in Business, to launch the three days of live programming.
There are many risks on the farm- financial, infectious disease, physical risk, and more. The panelists covered a range of expertise and were moderated by Minnesota Safety Council President, Paul Aasen.
