<u>Upcoming Cattle Auction for a Long-Time Farm Bureau 
Friend</u></div>
</div>


<div class="MsoBodyText">Through the years, many of you had 
the pleasure of knowing and working with David Huse, formerly from Schoharie 
County Farm Bureau.&nbsp; As you may be aware, David was killed earlier this 
summer in a tragic accident while helping a neighbor to harvest some field 
crops.&nbsp; 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.&nbsp; </div>


<div class="MsoBodyText">David was a passionate advocate 
for agriculture, and was an excellent beef producer.&nbsp; He spent many years 
working on the bloodlines of his cattle, and was a consummate marketer of his 
pasture-raised animals.&nbsp; 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.&nbsp; <u>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.</u>&nbsp; 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. </div>


<div class="MsoBodyText">To that end, there will be a 
November Grassroots ad showcasing the upcoming <strong>sale, which will take 
place on November 13<sup>th</sup>.</strong>&nbsp; I am also attaching a flyer 
created by the family.&nbsp; 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.&nbsp; 
</div>


<div class="MsoBodyText">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.&nbsp; 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.&nbsp; </div>


<div class="MsoBodyText">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.</div>
