New agricultural-related Web sites are popping up on the Internet every day. Here are a few that you might find useful:

Premium Standard Farms:

This Web site offers you an overview of the company, where its facilities are located, a description of the communities in which the company operates and available employment opportunities.

Michigan Department of Career Development:

It has job openings, migrant labor housing and other information about migrant and seasonal farm workers. You also can find names and locations of Michigan’s agricultural employment specialists, daycare and educational programs, seasonal crop information and general service information.

You can access the Migrant and Seasonal Farm Worker Program site at under “Related Links.”

LoneWillow/United Swine:

This site is the main information hub for the company. Lone Willow no longer publishes an artificial insemination catalog. Instead, the company uses the Web site to show its products. Quarterly brochures and show-pig fliers will be available on the site, which will change almost daily, according to Chris Leman at Lone Willow.

National Institute for Farm Safety:

This Web site includes background on NIFS, information on conference papers addressing topics ranging from disabilities, emergency preparedness and injuries/-fatalities to lighting and marking, machinery, personal protective equipment and worker environment.

You also can link to other Web sites to learn more about environmental and safety regulations, safety training, machinery/equipment and childhood agricultural health and safety.

Chicago Meat Authority:

This Web site offers information on the company and its products (including recipes and nutritional information), plus links to trade organizations and publications. The company specializes in delivering custom beef, pork and veal products to foodservice, retail and private-label customers worldwide.
