On July 21, 2004, Employee #1 was cleaning the Toe Clipper Popper, which clips the toe nails of cattle feet. While performing the final rinsing of the machine with water from a hose and pipe nozzle, he inadvertently made contact with the tripping mechanism rod. This activated a shield to descend, amputating the tip of his right ring finger. The accident was caused by failure to lock out/tag out the equipment.
