Grain Bin Rescue Training and equipment is essential for rural Fire Departments and First Responders across the nation. We are very excited to announce that during our Grain Bin Safety Campaign this fall we were able to raise over $60,000 in funds to contribute to responder teams across the nation! Special Thank to Kensington Fire Department for letting me tag and long and document the rescue training equipment in use.

Zach Johnson, the “Millennial Farmer” is a 5th-generation farmer who’s spent his life growing, working, and learning on his family’s farm. His wit and dry sense of humor appeal to children and adults alike. A product of the millennial generation, his appreciation of new technology blends with his old-fashioned work ethic, and he offers a unique ability to deliver his message in a way that resonates with lifelong farmers as well as those with no knowledge of agriculture.
With growing consumer awareness about where their food comes from, Zach has identified the need for an independent voice from the front lines of agriculture. Zach actively promotes agriculture by sharing his day-to-day experiences in the agriculture world while providing farmer-to-farmer education to help facilitate a collaborative conversation between farmers and the public.

My daughter is subscribed to MF and told me about this video. It was very interesting. My grandfather was a dairy farmer in Woodville, WI, so I was interested in all the VFWs that got help. My daughter got a laugh when she discovered you all (or whomever) misspelled Menomonie WI. Ends with NIE, not MIE. Unless there is a town with ALMOST the identical name. (Woodville is just west of Menomonie on 94)

It feels silly at the moment, but when shit has hit the fan they now have an idea of how to start defusing the situation and what the problems the rescuers might face are.

I’m glad you are showing this video. I was 14 working at a farm just outside of Cedar Rapids, IA and the farmer had me go in the grain bin to push the corn to the side of the bin as it was being topped off. I could barely breath and I started sinking fast. I was in up to grain to my chest and the farmer and his son pulled me out. I was nearly unconscious. I never got in the grain bin again. Plus, my dad never let me work with that farmer again. Thank you for showing how serious this can be.

It sure is nice to know there are people of high standards such as these, and that they would lay down their life for another is simply selfless.

I remember sitting in school when we saw the rescue vehicles go by, found out a guy from our town got stuck in his bin. He was the first one in the area to have survived. Obviously you’d never hope for this to happen but I’m glad our fire department was well prepared.

I don't know what to say - well, I guess I really do. One of the smartest uses of NOpost I've seen to both raise money to fund these tools for VFD's and see the training to make it even more valuable in others. Good work! Smart work and Safe work in one of the most dangerous work environments.

All joking aside, that was amazing. Scary shit. I've been in a "shit lagoon" in the winter and thought was going to sink to my death. But, staying calm and remembering my train on how to escape quicksand saved my butt. I loved how those guys would chuckle and laugh, but all of it was nervous laughter and you could tell they really, deep down, took it incredibly seriously and were that much more equipped and learned how to save a life. Great job!!!

In the European Alps these bins are not that often used for grain, because there are not that many farms producing grain, because it is to steap for fields. So they are using similar bins to produce silage for their cattle. People don't die there because they are burried below the chaff and hay; they die because of the CO2 and CO, which is produced during the process of becoming silage. I guess, that is way more dangerous, because you cannot see or smell the danger. It still kills people after all these years.

Sadly we lost a local farmer (Maple Lake, Wright County MN. due to a grain bin accident this last year. Local Fire departments and local farmers all pitched in to save him. Unfortunately rescue wasn't successful. Thank you for making this video. If it leads to the saving of one farmers life it's all worth it.

WATCHED THIS THREE TIME'S... DALE THANK YOU for training these men. When I first started watching farming with Cole the CornStar when he was just finishing school...he was in the grain shed on the corn and I asked what if there was an avalanche and he got buried...well these guys are the answer. Training maybe "relaxed and friendly" but from experience in public order way back in the day...👮‍♂️ slow and easy gets it in your head for when the big day comes. Randy is a BIG man and it was good to use him to get someone through a small gate... It must be really really difficult and dead easy to injure them badly. To be inside a grain silo must be scary... Hot, not much light, danger of sinking or avalanche, unconscious victim, performing CPR, watching your assienda and each other.. WHAOW these guys have Ball must be akin to sinking in a swamp or quicksand or drowning... Think the farmers who go in grain bins should have radios or attachments at the minimum,,, some kind of high decibel screaming emergency device .. My imagination went in overdrive watching thankyou for this demonstratuon of VOLUNTEER rescue men.. Keep safe your Aristotles. UgZ. 💜😊. x Any chance of seeing fire engines in action. How do your get from one place to another? Water supplies,,,? What's the comms like. What if it's a biggun.. If you can like ..even if your could only get Dale to give a talk and maybe Randy and the guys show us the equipment..I mean out in the farms everything's made from wood mostly... Next- paramedics HOW do the Farm community watch their kiboos ??? Mind how you go. 💜 ,

Just an idea but if fire fighters had snow shoes minus the holes they normally have in them they would not sink into the grain as much, just a thought anyway should work the same way as the kneeling pads they use only attached to their feet

I know safety training is good as I was a trainer for 18 yrs. I was just wondering how often in a season or a year does this happen. Once is enough but how often is emergency services required.

As important as the grain bin rescue is, one thing that really stuck out to me is the people on the outside of the bin. Here in their mock scenario there was a large platform to stand on. Very few bins would have that kind of room to stand on. Reality is most bins will have a ladder on the outside, with no safety cage. In the event the individual that was trapped is unconscious an needs to removed with a body board through the man-hole opening, that aspect needs to be addressed to get the patient safely back to the ground.

I have used three d sonar to do to measure car frame specs. I wish I WAS WEALTHY I WOULD MAKESOMETHING GIVE MY DESIGN TO FIRE DEPARTMENTS .PS I COULD EASLY BUILD FLEX DRIVEN CHAINSAW AUGER .MY big chainsaw has about 7hp that would really move grain .

Man this is awesome to see that people are training for this, I had a bin accident in September almost lost my right leg, it's nice to know people are preparing for these accidents. Then the one guy ask is that your bad leg that hit home hard I got my right leg cought in a unload drag for a grain silo that brought a lot back to mind.

Left the farm life back in the mid 70's and took up const. Learned a lot on safety when working at great hts If I were to return to farming I'd never enter a bin alone and never with out a safety harness and tie off..OSHA has changed my thinking ..And hopefully this video is a start for Dads to incorporate rules of const if not followed your sent home on an lose a days pay..2nd time don't come back

@Blake Jenkins the fact that you're serious is hilarious. No matter what I say you'll assume I'm being defensive and I'm guilty as charged. All I can say is what I have so far: you're seeing something that isn't there. I didn't even know that was a symbol for anything other than OK until today. If you don't want to believe me, there's nothing more I can do. Have a nice day.

@Millennial Farmer It's just the weirdest thing: last Fall most of the farmtubers I'd been watching for quite some time started using their fingers in this manner rather than the typical 'thumbs up'. More noticeable was that it was always awkwardly placed. Of course, I knew what you meant and so did my wife. She got so pissed off I had to start watching your videos in secret. Pretty regretful and careless on your part considering the revenue you generate from this platform. Would you like more examples? Seriously.
