Dowerin Machinery Field Days 2019

As part of our partnership with Rural Bank we are attending Dowerin Machinery Field Days on 28 & 29 August 2019.

We will be presenting a range of health, wellbeing and safety presentations on Day 1 and FREE Health and Lifestyle Assessments on Day 1 & 2.

Our farmer Health and Lifestyle Assessments are a 20-minute health assessment and include a lifestyle survey covering health behaviours, farm practices and social and emotional wellbeing. The assessment includes cholesterol, blood glucose and blood pressure readings along with diabetes risk, BMI, % body fat and eyesight testing.

The aims and objectives of the Health and Lifestyle Assessments are;

To identify health and wellbeing risk factors in agricultural producers, farm workers and associated industries.

To provide knowledge and skills to assist rural people to enhance their health, wellbeing and safety practices.

To identify health indicators in agricultural regions of Australia to better target future research and service delivery.

The National Centre for Farmer Health will be located with Rural Bank at Site 61.
