TAYLORVILLE — More than 300 students from all across the county gathered at the Christian County Fairgrounds today to observe several ag safety demonstrations put on by the University of Illinois Extension Office. A fifth grade student from Mrs. Hardimon’s Central A&M class is shown struggling with a weighted rope apparatus designed to measure force. It is intended to give students an idea of the amount of force exerted on a 165-pound person buried waist deep in corn, a situation that could occur in a grain bin accident. Students were instructed on about a dozen different ag and general safety issues as part of the program.
