Got this call last night at 10:30 for a feed truck that had gotten stuck on the ice on a hill. As you can see he had started up the hill with one axle chained up and spun out, slid back to where you see it. The snow on the right side is about the only thing that saved it from going into a steep ditch. Was able to pull him back up to me (twice) to get it straight enough to back him back down him back down the hill and around the corner. We first spread about 150 lbs of salt and turkey grit on the road to be able to walk. As you can see at the bottom of this picture the road was a sheer sheet of ice. The picture does not convey the steepness of the hill. I am not good at percent grades but pretty damn steep!!!

It is very fine rock that is fed to birds to aid in digestion. We have a lot of very large turkey growers in this area also
