Reading this board brought back these memories. Seems that a lot of bad accidents happened on farms when I was a kid.
I had one cousin get run over while doing field work on a tractor. He walked with a shuffle for a long time.
This cousin’s father got the bottom of his foot peeled off by a barn cleaner.(Conveyor that takes out the manure.) Most of the meat on his foot was gone.
I had another cousin fall from a hay loft onto a pitch fork. The fork went through his leg. He had fainting spells for years after that.
The last cousin’s uncle got his nuts ripped off by a power take off.
My grandpa married a woman whose husband got fried by lightening on a tractor.
I’m not going to list incidents with nails through the feet or gashes with stiches.
Please keep this discussion about farm accidents. I’ve seen worse. I just want to know if you feel accidents on the farm occur at a high rate and your experiences.
