Grain Safety

Grain bins, farming and machinery can be dangerous to every farmer. On a daily basis we handle chemicals, running motors/pulleys and unpredictable animals.

At Lockie Farms we encourage safety as much as we possibly can.

We have included a link for Grain Entrapment Document for resource and will continue to add items as we come across them.

Stay Safe!
