Bill Berg, a familiar face to many in Ohio agriculture, suffered a broken hip, serious lacerations and broken arms after being run over by a no-till drill. He passed away on Oct. 21.
Berg, 71, was a lifetime farmer in Auglaize County, and was active in numerous roles in the Ohio Corn and Wheat Growers Association. He was a member of the National Corn Growers Association Growers Service Action Team.
He was transported by LifeFlight helicopter to St. Rita’s Medical Center shortly after the accident. Berg had just been working on the drill. It had been repaired when his brother, Jim, drove off and did not realize Berg had not left the area around the drill.
Please keep the Berg family in your thoughts and prayers.
