The foundation will officially become public at World Dairy Expo, October 3 – 7 in Madison, WI. The foundation’s first presentation, “Bunker and Pile Safety – Get Your Wakeup Call Today” is at the Arena Building Forage Seminar Stage on Friday, October 6, 10:00 a.m.
“The foundation will share the importance of silage safety through proper management practices from harvest to feedout,” says Keith. “Ruthie and I have experienced the pain of injury and death with the family members of silage accidents, and it is our goal that everyone working on a dairy or beef farm goes home safe every day.” The foundation’s website outlines the resources available: printed and video materials, speaker opportunities, training workshops, and scholarships for families of silage collapse victims.
“Preventing silage accidents is a big challenge, and we are looking for donors - both industry and individual farmers - who want to support this important mission,” adds Ruthie.
Keith and Ruthie will be at World Dairy Expo in Madison, Wisconsin October 3 – 7 to introduce and promote the foundation. Please stop by their display in the Connor Agriscience booth, Arena Building, Space 490 and 491.
