At 1:00 p.m. on November 20, 2018, Employee #1 and Employee #2 were filling in t he irrigation pivot tire tracks left in the alfalfa field using a John Deere 449 5 agricultural tractor and belly dump trailer to fill in the wheel tracks.

Employee #1 drove the tractor and trailer into the alfalfa field , situated the trailer over the irrigation pivot tire tracks, and opened the doo rs to the trailer, allowing soil to pour out of the trailer into the tire tracks . The soil was clogged inside the trailer. The doors of the belly dump trailer would not move. It was almost lunch time, so Employee #2 drove the tractor back to the shop.
