Abstract

The responses of 56 farmers in six different farmer focus groups in Iowa and Nebraska to the development of a Certified Safe Farm (CSF) program are presented. The premise of the CSF is to use reductions in health insurance rates and/or other financial incentives to motivate farmers to become healthier and safer. The farmer focus groups revealed no major barriers to the development and testing of the CSF program, but exposed a number of considerations subsequently incorporated into the CSF model.
