5th generation family farm and home gone

$40,306 of $50,000 goal

5th generation  Willard, Denise and Anthony Ruzicka farm raising beef cattle for sale.  Upstream dam broke due to ice jam and flooding.  This farm sustained complete destruction.  Several hundred cattle relocated to higher neighboring ground trying to feed as family remains.  Death of all bulls trapped by ice.  Cattle are calving and newborn baby calves struggling to survive.   Two family homes destroyed on property.  Loss of an enormous amount of farm equipment, buildings, fencing, all shop tools and fencing equipment, most home possessions, silage, cattle vaccines, grain and most of the bins.  Power and electric lost. 
My family has grazed cattle for 150+ years after moving to this country from Czechoslovakia.  They have fed this country and lived and cared for this land and need your help desperately.  They love their animals and are so proud of what they do.  Your support reminds them to stay strong despite the hardship.  Thank you!!!
