My name is Andy Mauschbaugh and I work for Nationwide Agribusiness out of Des Moines, IA. As a result of a serious increase in 2013 of grain entrapments we have decided to take on an initiative to promote grain bin safety. We would like invite Penn State University Ag Extension to show its support of Grain Bin Safety Week (Feb. 23 - Mar. 1, 2014) and to help us get our life-saving messages into the hands of the people who can make a difference.
