Sneak peek at Black Hills Stock Show & Rodeo

Black Hills Stock Show & Rodeo

Grapefruit zapped during demonstration.

Today at the Black Hills Stock Show & Rodeo, Touchstone Energy Cooperatives are showing a crowd the damage 7,200 volts can do… and how to stay safe.

The shocking presentation has been a hit for years. Watch the video below from the 2011 show: Wild video from Black Hills Ranch Rodeo.

Joe Connot of West Central Electric Cooperative, Murdo; and Gerald Draine and Mike Davis of Butte Electric Cooperative‘s Spearfish office channeled electricity through tree branches, hot dogs and grapefruit to drive home the message to stay away from power lines.
