Things to do: Check your #1 Farming Asset—YOU!
 
Staying healthy and safe is important in good times and trying times. The times when we least feel like looking after ourselves are when we need to do it the most.
 
We have partnered with Agriculture Victoria to check the health of farm men, women and agricultural workers at Farm World, Lardner Park on 11-13 April 2019. Taking just 20 minutes, the farmer health assessments include a lifestyle survey covering health behaviours, farm practices and social and emotional wellbeing. Participants will also have their cholesterol, blood glucose, blood pressure, BMI and diabetes risk measured, and eyesight tested.
 
Invest in the most important aspect of your agricultural business (YOU) with a FREE Health and Lifestyle Assessment at the Agriculture Victoria site in the Baw Baw Pavilion.
