Near Wolford, North Dakota: “The impact has been great. Wheat, corn, and soybeans are still out in the field. The wheat and soybeans are buried in some places. We haven’t been able to chop our corn because of the wet fall, therefore making it impossible to bring cattle home before the storm. They need to go in the field that the corn is in. We have been forced to feed cows out in the pasture the last two days which is going to deplete an already short hay supply. We lost all our oats hay due to the constant rain and the snow we had last week. The picture above is covered soybeans.
Our farmers and ranchers need our love and support. The impact of the storm across western and central North Dakota is dire. Farmers and ranchers across the area were especially impacted.
What do you think we can do to help our farmers and ranchers?
One FaceBook reader who saw these pictures wrote a comment that reflects what most of us are feeling: Holly Anderson “This is so sad. It affects so many of these hard working people’s livelihood. It also will potentially affect the costs for consumers as well. The moisture is needed but never is wanted in this quantity and this early. I am so sad for all of these farm families.”
Loving each other Means farmers and ranchers, too. What form will love take?
