UC Davis Students Learn to Drive Tractors at Top Ag School
I grew up on a farm so I always saw my dad working a tractor. He taught me a couple times but it was more, like Oh, you pull this lever. And he wouldn’t really know how to explain it. So I’m taking this class So I actually know how everything works. I told my dad at the beginning of the quarter and he got so excited, like ‘Oh good!’ ‘When I’m tired I’ll let you get up on there and drive,’ ‘and I’ll just hang out in the shade.’ This is the class that teaches the students how to use the equipment in the field. At least they learn how to drive tractors, which is not easy to learn.
