Farm Rescue is currently accepting applications for livestock feeding assistance......

    HORACE, N.D. - Farm Rescue, a nonprofit organization that provides planting, haying and harvesting assistance free of charge to farm and ranch families who have experienced a major illness, injury or natural disaster, is currently accepting applications for livestock feeding assistance.
 
    The program, now in its second year, provides volunteers and equipment to support livestock feeding when a rancher is unable to perform the work, due to a crisis. Equipment has been generously provided by Haybuster (a division of DuraTech Industries) of Jamestown. Volunteers may also operate rancher-owned equipment, if needed.
 
    Farm Rescue has steadily increased its capacity to help more producers each year, including a growing number of ranch families. The nonprofit added haying assistance services in 2012 and recently completed "Operation Hay Lift", in which hundreds of loads of hay were delivered to ranchers affected by severe drought. The livestock feeding assistance program provides a short-term means of sustaining cattle herds when ranchers are unable to perform the work themselves.
 
    "We are proud to continue offering this service to area ranchers," said Bill Gross, Founder & President, Farm Rescue. "We recognize the challenges that hard-working ranchers face on an ongoing basis. Livestock still needs to be fed when crisis strikes unexpectedly, and it's our goal to provide timely livestock feeding assistance when a ranch family is in the recovery phase of a major injury, illness or natural disaster."
 
    The North Dakota-based nonprofit now provides support in six states throughout the Midwest and offers livestock feeding assistance throughout its entire service area. As with all Farm Rescue services, livestock feeding assistance is provided through the work of volunteers. The organization is seeking additional volunteers for this ranch-focused program. Anyone interested in joining the Farm Rescuer family of volunteers to help ranchers should submit a volunteer form at www.farmrescue.org.

    FARGO, ND - Dale Ihry, Executive Director of the North Dakota Corn Utilization Council and the North Dakota Corn Growers Association, died Thursday due to complications from a recent illness.

    Ihry had served ND Corn in this capacity since 2015. Prior to 2015 he was the Farm Service Agency (FSA) Director in charge of Agricultural Risk Coverage (ARC) and Price Loss Coverage (PLC) programs in North Dakota since 1987. In both roles, Ihry maintained close working relationships with federal USDA agencies, the U.S. Attorney's Office, State government agencies, the Governor's office, congressional offices, commodity groups and agricultural media. He brought passion, experience and energy to his role with ND Corn.

    "Dale worked tirelessly for agriculture throughout his career. Dale's contributions to our organizations, our community, and our industry are indispensable. He will be greatly missed," said Terry Wehlander, ND Corn Utilization Council Chairman.
