||This leaflet encourages young farmers to protect their ears from noise. A 25-year-old farmer can often have the ears of a 50-year-old who is not exposed to noise and not even know it. The leaflet is designed to increase the awareness of young farmers below the age of 35 and their families about the relationship between farm noise and the early onset of tinnitus and hearing loss. See also CIS 08-530.
