Re: Upcoming Cattle Auction for a Long-Time Farm Bureau Friend
Through the years, many of you had the pleasure of knowing and working with David Huse, formerly from Schoharie County Farm Bureau. As you may be aware, David was killed earlier this summer in a tragic accident while helping a neighbor to harvest some field crops. It was typical of David’s long-standing service to the farm community that he passed away while engaged in extending a helping hand to a neighboring farmer.
David was a passionate advocate for agriculture, and was an excellent beef producer. He spent many years working on the bloodlines of his cattle, and was a consummate marketer of his pasture-raised animals. His family, unfortunately, is not in a position where they can care for his cattle or continue the farm as it had been operated while David was involved. NYFB has received a request to help publicize the David Huse Memorial Auction to anyone in the agricultural community who may be interested in purchasing David’s carefully-tended cattle. It is important to David’s family that the farm community be aware and help continue what his family views as a critical part of his legacy – the maintenance and development of the bloodlines he created.
To that end, there will be a November Grassroots ad showcasing the upcoming sale, which will take place on November 13th. I am also attaching a flyer created by the family. Please feel free to distribute the flyer or the information contained in it how you see fit; particularly if you know a beef farmer who may be interested in purchasing some or all of David’s cattle.
This means a great deal to David’s family, and in deference to and acknowledgement of the many hours he spent serving the agricultural community, Schoharie CFB, and NYFB, I would like to honor his family’s wishes. David is already missed by many of us, and those of you who had the pleasure of knowing him through the years will, I am sure, understand why we would like to make a special effort of honoring the wishes of his family in this difficult time.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at the State Office at (518) 436-8495. Best regards.
