Have you Heard? Hearing Loss Caused by Farm Noise is Preventable

Hearing Loss Caused by Farm Noise is Preventable: The Young Farmers' Guide for
Selecting and Using Hearing Protection is designed to overview the variety of
hearing protection available and when and how to use it.

A 25-year-old farmer can often have the ears of a 50-year-old who is not
exposed to noise and not even know it. This brochure can help young farmers
prevent hearing loss; it is accompanied by the brochure "They're you ears -
Protect them". Both brochures are especially suited for young farmers ages
14-35 and their families. They provide information about hazardous noise and
tips on using hearing protection.
