Don't Take Shortcuts with Big Bales (PSA Radio Script)

(Time: 30)

Taking shortcuts may not seem life-threatening, but it can be when you're working with a fifteen-hundred-pound mass that rolls.

One large round bale of hay can weigh as much as a small car. It also gains speed like a car if it takes off down a hill or incline.

Don't take shortcuts and don't take chances with large round bales.
