The founder and CEO of the nonprofit Farm Rescue program is being inducted into the North Dakota Agriculture Hall of Fame.
Bill Gross will be inducted on March 9 during the North Dakota Winter Show in Valley City, along with retired Mandan ranchers Dick and Theresa Tokach.
Gross started Farm Rescue in North Dakota in 2006 to help farmers in need plant and harvest their crops. It has since expanded to South Dakota, Montana, Minnesota and Iowa, and helped its 200th farmer last year.
The Tokaches have served with several state and national groups and received numerous awards and honors for their work in the cattle industry.
