Goehring says more harvest help is needed in state

Farm Forum

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) – North Dakota’s Agriculture Commissioner says more combiners are needed to help bring in the state’s harvest this year.

Doug Goehring says the state’s Harvest Hotline has a long list of farmers who need combining services but few looking for work.

Goehring says the number of farmers on the list looking for work is more than three times the number of harvesters.

Farmers can call the hotline and the department will match them up with someone who needs harvesting help or work. Department employees answer the phones daily from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. The hotline is free of charge.
