This Emergency Room based farm injury surveillance system identified 913 victims of agricultural trauma in central Wisconsin during a two year period. This report focuses on characteristics of the victims and specific agents associated with the trauma, fall or exposure. Surveillance of farm injuries from the medical perspective can complement information obtained from other systems. An interdisciplinary approach to understanding the complexity of agricultural trauma is warranted in the search for a resolution to this ongoing national concern.
