A nonprofit is lending a helping hand to farm and ranch families during some of their most difficult times.
Farm Rescue’s Dan Erdmann says their organization has aided over 800 families since 2005 through planting, haying, harvesting and livestock feeding assistance.
“We call it a hand up, not a handout,” Erdmann said. “It’s tangible support to get farm families through a difficult situation whether it be injury, illness or natural disaster.”
In 2021, Western Kansas farmers Chad and Mandy Focke received Farm Rescue support when Chad suffered a major health challenge.
