To the rescue

June 26, 2017 was not a day we'd like to relive. If you'd like to know about the day and the weeks that followed, the details are included on this blog. Yesterday, June 26, 2018, we were contacted by Dan Erdman with the Farm Rescue organization. He wanted to let us know a video focusing on Doug, his accident and the aid we received from Farm Rescue was completed and available for viewing. Ironic timing to say the least.

We'd like to sincerely thank Farm Rescue as well as all those who support their noble effort. While the loads of hay we received may only be hay to some, they were more to our family.

The bales represented bundles of support and love; the hay allowed us to feed our cattle all winter without having to disperse; the feedstuff lessened our financial burden we would have otherwise had, had we purchased the bales instead, and in the wake of the accident this was a blessing. Those hay bales may be long gone, transformed into energy for our herd of cattle, but their meaning and legacy will not be forgotten.

For those of you not familiar with Farm Rescue, they are a non-profit organization founded in 2005 who aid family farms and ranches in times of need. We were their 500th case in which they stepped in to help. They have served families in North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska and eastern Montana. Farm Rescue does not dole out money; they provide much-needed labor and equipment to complete planting, put up hay, harvest, haul hay or assist in the feeding of livestock. If you or someone you know is in need of help; if you'd like to volunteer; if you'd like more information reach out to P.O. Box 28, Horace, ND 58047 | 701-252-2017 |
