5 Stanley Schumann at the Medical University of South Carolina expanded on the agromedicine concept. He observed that the Cooperative Extension Service of land grant colleges had agri­ cultural specialists in every county of the state to disseminate information from the research cam­ puses to the farmers in the countryside. Extension agents are located in rural areas to assist with problem solving that might arise regarding pro­ duction issues. Schumann thought that medical and health information and problem solving could and should be disseminated in a similar manner, but in full collaboration and in context with scientific agricultural production informa­ tion (26).

Similar demographics are seen in Australia, where the median age is 55 years (55). The vast majority (over 95%) of the US family farm workforce is Caucasian, primarily of Northern European descent. 5% include Native American Indians and Asian or Pacific Islanders. Over 70% of the principal operators live on their farm (57). 3 Farm Family Members Women have long been a vital component in the family farming enterprise.

Simmons (32) suggests there is a need for a special residency program in rural health and agricultural medicine. Physicians in rural communities often serve as the health leader, and therefore their actions may have a profound effect on their community’s health activities. Nurses also have a vital role in delivery of agri­ cultural health services (33–36), for example the AgriSafe network (37) is a nurse‐based model for delivery of occupational health services in farming ­ communities. Veterinarians have an excellent opportunity to play a role in the health and safety of their farm clients.
