Goehring activates Harvest Hotline

BISMARCK – Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring has activated the North Dakota Harvest Hotline.

“If you need someone to combine your fields or if you are a harvester looking for a job, call us at (701) 328-2391,” Goehring said. “We will put your name in the Harvest Hotline database and match you up with other callers.”

Goehring said North Dakota Department of Agriculture (NDDA) employees will answer calls to the hotline weekdays from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Evening and weekend callers can leave a message. The service is free of charge.

“Farmers and combiners are already calling in,” Goehring said. “Although the crop season is running late, the small grains harvest will soon be getting underway.” 

First used in 1992, when adverse weather conditions caused a heavy demand for custom combining, the Harvest Hotline has been offered annually as a free service for farmers and combiners.
