Max Armstrong looks at the hazards of stored grain, farm entrapments and one company's response

Max Armstrong notes that thousands of years farmers enter grain bins, often threatening their lives. Flowing grain can trap a farmer quickly, and rescuing those farmers is a challenge. The number of deaths spiked in 2019. Max shares the story of one company that is donating life-saving rescue tubes to volunteer fire departments.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
