Roll over protection and small farms

Iowa Farmer came out with an article about the importance of roll over protective structures on small farms. Tractor rollover is still the leading cause of deaths and severe injuries in agriculture, and numerous studies have shown that using rollover protection plus a seat belt (to keep you inside of the protected zone) is over 99% effective at preventing death and severe injury during a rollover. With many states offering financial and installation assistance, and new designs that allow roll bars to be folded down if being able to enter low-ceiling barns is a concern, it’s easier and more affordable than ever to upgrade older tractors.
