Layers feeding at trough

Livestock farmers have been warned to check the integrity of their grain silos following two collapsing in the Netherlands, causing the death of a feed delivery driver.

Last year, a feed bin on a farm near Boxtel, in the southern Netherlands collapsed, killing a delivery driver who was not identified because of the country’s privacy laws. A second, separate, incident was described as a “near miss”. 

The Agricultural Industries Confederation (AIC), a trade association, said it wanted to remind UK farmers that feed bins may be a forgotten danger on farms. See full article here.
