Doug Bichler, who ranches at Linton, North Dakota, was in a farm accident two years ago while baling hay. “One of the belts must have grabbed my hand. Before I knew it, I was getting pulled in.” His life changed in an instant. While Doug lost his entire right arm as a result of the accident, he continues to ranch today. That is helped out by a positive attitude. “Obviously, having one arm is a challenge. There are days I do get frustrated, but, I’ve come up with different ways to accomplish tasks and am doing just about everything I was doing before.” Hear Doug’s story in the latest edition of TransFARMation.
