That magnet -tip was very interesting! But has anyone had a problem (and gladly I would like to hear if there’s a solution…) with aluminium cans (beer, cider etc.) that are thrown from car windows to the ditch? Where from wind blows them to the grass field. There they go to silage in small pieces and cause deaths of cows here in Finland. A painful death with a massive blood loss inside. Magnets doesn’t work to aluminium. So what can we do? You can’t see the cans from high grass.

Some of the suggestions we got on other social media:

Hi. One of the methods for separating hazardous materials in the food is a metal detector or X-ray machine that performs separation by passing the feed from inside it, which can be tubing or conveyor.

Jack Smith
Maybe have a high recycling reward for bringing in cans. Post signs that say something like “Aluminum cans get into our fields and kill our cows- be kind, recycle them.”

Lars Bo Nielsen
Look the articles from the 80's and 90's. We all had to deal with that problem back then

How about grazing the edges of the field with heifers/dry cows? Or do the cans get blown throughout the field?

We have looked for this as a cause of traumatic indigestion in Denmark and although we do have a lot of Cans in the field No pant as they are imported from Germany. Not one single autopsy showed cans as a problem. It is a good story and it might help people to think more about not to throw cans out of the car windows but it is Fake news.
