Farm Rescue helps man recovering from heart surgery

Bismarck, ND – Farm rescue steps in to save 600 acres of corn that nearly went to waste.

“I had four bypasses in march and we thought everything was good to go, well here October first I had Micro heart valve replacement and two more bypasses and had a few problems but now I’m on the up hill,” farmer and rancher John Rogstad said.

“So we’re here helping john his family and his brothers to harvest about 600 hundred acres of corn here due to John’s open heart surgery. He’s unable to be out there in the combine or the trucks doing the work,” Levi Wielenga, the Operation Manager Farm Rescue said.

“I had 600 hundred acres of corn here and they started the day before yesterday and now they’re on the last field, they should finish today if they don’t have any breakdowns,” Rogstad said.

It’s been a fun case he’s got some good equipment to work with and a real fun crew and his mom is always cooking us food. We’ve had  a lot of fun,” Wielenga said.

“Farm Rescue it’s a good thing to have to anybody that’s in need. I recommend to get a hold of them, or if anyone wants to donate to farm rescue anything to help people that are in need,” Rogstad said.
