After much consideration, I am reaching out through GoGetFunding to get help for my brother David. He is a dairy farmer in his 50's and being single all his life had one main dream and that was to own a farm of his own. His dream seemed to come true about 5 years ago when he secured a loan and moved on his very own farm, small but his none the less. The tragic events in his life didn't seem to end with the purchase of his farm.
Falling from a hayloft at age 7 sent him to the hospital where he laid unconscious for days leaving him with a brain injury and somewhat of a learning disability.
In his 30's he was mulled by a bull while working as a farm hand again sending him to the hospital with multiple injuries. In recent years an old knee injury has him walking with a very bad limp.
Last August he had a fire in his silo. His summer's hard work harvesting his hay crop went up in smoke. The Insurance only covered $5,000 of the $11,000 loss. A Farm Aid Fund granted him $1,000 but that has left him $5,000 short. It has been an extremely cold winter and his cows are in need of extra feed. It is a long way before we will see any green grass for his cows to graze on. His family has lent him a helping hand for many things through the years but he really could use your help to recover from this last tragic event. Please consider sponsoring David through GoGetFunding. Thank you.
