This is terrible news!  I hope the recovery process is quick but as some of us know we don't mend and recover as fast as we get some age on our bodies. Wishing all the best for Terry and his family. He is one of the best!

I had a good friend who was killed in an ATV accident when she was out spraying weeds....another person who was a neighbor had a bad roll over with an ATV and was seriously injured; plz always be careful on these things.  They are dangerous.  Both of the aforementioned ppl were very careful, going about their farm work; those dang things just aren't safe; our family has two of them and don't know what we'd do without them but they have to be always used with caution.

Prayers for cowboy.......

Terry is still in the hospital and able to breath on oxygen. It's going to be a long recovery for him.

Just logging on after several days gone with Regional cattle shows. We are praying for him here, please keep us updated on his progress. As others have said, he made a big impact on our thoughts on AI and flushing over the years.
We pray that God heals his body quickly and he can get back in the saddle again quickly!!!

God, family, and Simmental cattle;  that's what makes life worth living!

Don't know him, but hope he has a speedy recovery.

Don't know the details of his wreck, but almost every report I've seen of ATV wrecks injuring/killing folks around here for years have been folks driving them on paved roads - and either losing control or being hit by cars/trucks.  Used to have one kid in the neighborhood that would rocket up & down the highway on one here - pretty sure he was going over 50mph - faster than I'd drive a car on our road. 
They are off-road vehicles, not meant for use on hard-surface roads - they don't 'handle right' on pavement, and it's easy to lose control.  Always had to impress upon my kids that the ATV was a farm implement, not a toy, not a racecar.

Cowboy is headed home. He is looking at 8 weeks of doing nothing and another 8 weeks after that of very limited activity. Any way you look at it it will be 4 to 5 months of not being able to work or have any income. He already has a mountain of medical bills that will continue to pile up not to mention the daily bills that we all incur on a daily basis. There has been a couple of inquiries from people wanting to know if there will be any type of fundraiser for him. I am all for it and will help as much as I can. If you have suggestions by all means post them. Thanks, RW

We could do a fundraising online sale through Breedersworld or Caldwell....or Steerplanet if that is still a thing we're trying out.  I'd be glad to help set it up and donate an embryo package and/or some services.  I know we could barely hope to touch the medical bills but it may help with the day to day expense.  We could also do something like offer an ad on this site if you sponsor feed for Terry's animals for a month or something.  I know I'd be interested in that as well. 

I've never been able to use Terry for any direct ET work like I'd like to, but he's been a wealth of information and really really helped me out when I was just learning about ET. The man has more cow sense in his little toe than many so-called "experts" have in their entire bodies. 

I'd be glad to donate and assist with any fundraising event anyone does.

I would also be glad to offer some semen in a sale. Not just leftover junk from the past either. Let's help out our friend !!

I'm very willing to donate to a fundraiser for Terry. Just let me know when and where.

I would be more than glad to donate semen.  It's some I might not use (wrong breed) but very useful for others.  I suggest Breedersworld.  Could someone that have used them for their own sales contact Roger?  If we donate semen, is there a way to minimize or get a semen company to contribute toward shipping costs?  I have benefitted from Terry's free advice on this forum, and have contacted him directly by email.  Very helpful and knowledgeable.  Wish him a full, speedy recovery!!

Over 900 readings of RW's original post in the first 24 hours (while many were busy in the field).  This indicates the level of connection SP members have with Terry.  Definitely, a fundraiser is appropriate.  Many of us have already received the goods.  I would suggest a feature that would include as many contributors as possible.  If a large percentage contributed based on their ability, perhaps the value of a quick farm vet visit or even the value of an embryo implant service, it would add up.  Actual fund raising items add logistics and costs. 
Another scenario that works well;  valuable item that a group purchases and then donate into the auction, again.  Hopefully the service venue chosen could include this option.
