Grain handling and storage plays a very important role in Missouri farming. But working in grain bins can also be very dangerous. We visited with Ron Hayes who lost his son in a grain bin accident in 1993. Hayes started the F.I.G.H.T. Project to share his story in hopes to educate farmers and future generations about the hazards when working with grain.
