Podcast: grain safety, farm safety clinics help communitities

In this podcast, Steve Ebke, a farmer from Daykin and member of the Nebraska Corn Growers Association, discusses grain safety and facts about grain entrapment. Many community members and farmers this past month learned how to handle themselves around grain storage and flowing grain—and how to respond if an emergency arises—during a series of free farm safety clinics sponsored by NeCGA, Nebraska Corn Board and GSI.

Each clinic included training in confined space entry, flowing grain safety, rope and harness techniques and hands-only CRP. These are potentially life-saving procedures that every farmer—and every person who handles grain in your operation—should know. With just one misstep or just a moment of distraction, you could find yourself or someone you know in a grain entrapment emergency. We want you to avoid a life-threatening situation—and how to respond if one occurs.
