Family, friends and neighbors have pulled together for David Adams, to keep the farming running.

Injured in a tragic accident while cutting hay June 22, Adams is in stable condition in Fargo.

"He's doing really well, considering what he has been through," said cousin Deb Loken. "We really thank everybody who pulled together to help out...The neighborhood and family members are taking care of everything that needs to be done on the farm."

A beef cattleman who also grows hay and corn, Adams, 58, farms west of Richville. The accident occurred at about noon, when he evidently hit a rough spot and was bounced from his tractor seat in to the path of the machinery.

"He's starting to get some movement in his legs and arms, and he's starting to become more coherent," said Loken.

Adams sustained internal injuries, including a collapsed lung, as well as broken bones.

Hospital visitors are not encouraged, with the exception of immediate family.

"He is still in intensive care, but is stable at this point," said his wife Dorothy.

A benefit fund has been established on behalf of David Adams and his family, at Farmer's State Bank, in Dent and Perham.
