OSHA vaccine order has some agribusinesses concerned

The Biden administration’s mandatory COVID vaccination order for all companies with more than 100 employees is getting both acceptance and pushback in the agriculture sector.

John Umhoefer with the Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association tells Brownfield he expects few if any problems within his membership. He says, “Right now, I’m sure our members are looking at the plans they’re seeing from OSHA. They will prepare to take the steps that are necessary, and we’re just going to focus on worker safety until this pandemic is in the rearview mirror.”

Tom Bresner with the Wisconsin Agri-Business Association says he’s heard from some of his members who are worried about losing key employees like agronomists.
