Movie in Webster to help raise awareness of grain entrapment accidents

WEBSTER, S.D. (Hub City and Press Release) – The movie “SILO” will bring awareness to grain entrapment safety on March 10, 2020, in Webster, thanks to support from community organizations.

Jerry Mork, Clark-Day County Farm Bureau President, talked about the background for the idea.

Inspired by true events, SILO follows a tense day in an American farm town. Disaster strikes when a teenager is entrapped in a 50-foot tall grain bin. When the corn turns to quicksand, family, neighbors and first responders must put aside their differences to rescue him from drowning in the crop that has sustained their community for generations.

The movie will be shown to students during the afternoon and then for the general public that evening at a reduced price of $4 per person.

Brian Moes from Codington / Hamlin County Farm Bureau and Webster FFA advisor, Fred Zenk, also helped coordinate the event.

The awareness activities are sponsored by Clark / Day County Farm Bureau, with additional support from Agtegra, Agwrx, Dacotah Bank and a grant from Grinnel Mutual.

Mork said he thinks this will be a one-time event, but encouraged others to find out more about the movie.
