Mid Island Farmers Institute discusses tractors

March 21 meeting at Merville Happ

Purchasing a tractor is a big commitment for any farmer and ensuring the machine you buy can do the work you want it to do is important.

Join the Mid Island Farmers Institute on Wednesday, March 21 at 7 p.m. for a discussion on “Tractors: What to Look Out for When Buying Second Hand.”

Local mechanic, Tom Benson, will lead the discussion, which will include tips on the types of repairs that are easy to do and the models that are simpler to maintain.

The meeting will also include information from a representative of AgSafe BC on the safety risks around farms for both farm owners and workers. AgSafe, formerly known as FARSHA (Farm and Ranch Safety & Health Association) seeks to reduce the number of incidents on farms and ranches in British Columbia through an active program of education, training and consultation in all regions of the province.

The meeting will be held at the Merville Hall, 1245 Fenwick Rd, from 7-8:30 p.m. The meeting is free for all members of the Mid Island Farmers Institute with a suggested donation of $5 for non-members. Institute membership is open to anyone in the community.
