Wisconsin farmers and manure haulers can help protect themselves from highly toxic hydrogen sulfide gas by renting gas monitors through the Mike Biadasz Manure-Gas Monitor Rebate Program.

On Aug. 15, 2016, Mike Biadasz went out to agitate a manure pit on his family's farm. When the crust layer on top of the pit opened, hydrogen sulfide gas was expelled. The lack of air movement and sudden release of hydrogen sulfide gas (which is heavier than air) tragically took Mike's life, along with 16 steers.

In the wake of tragedy Mike's family turned their grief into action.

This program will provide rebates for farmers and manure haulers who rent gas monitors, protecting them, their workers, and their family from the hazards of manure gas.

But, four-gas hand monitors are typically expensive to purchase and require calibration every 3-4 months to ensure it is working properly. Calibration can also be expensive. This program allows you to rent the right equipment at a reduced cost.| READ MORE
