WATCH: Dozens of farmers donate time for a Southeast Nebraska family to help after tragic event

We know Nebraska farmers are close and when something tragic happens to one, you can bet an army of others will come to help. That was the case in Beatrice.

BEATRICE, Neb. (KLKN) – 35-year-old Bryce Niss was killed in a farming accident back in November near Pawnee City. Now dozens of local farmers have donated their time and trailers to drop off cattle for an auction to help his wife and three children get through the tragic event.

30 trailers full of the family’s cows arrived at the Beatrice 77 Sale Barn to be auctioned off,  all of the proceeds going to the Niss family. The farmers donated their time and trailers to bring the Niss’s family cows to the Livestock barn where they will be auctioned off this Thursday. The cows were a big part of Bryce’s life.

Bryce Niss was killed November 17th after a grain truck accident, leaving behind his wife and three kids, all under the age of 11. His family says he’ll be remembered for his kindness to others, hard-working mentality and the ability to make everyone laugh.

“It’s been tough, it’s been hard,” Jeff Broady, Bryce Niss’s father-in-law said. “The emotions, I don’t know how to put them into words, but with the love of family and the community, we’re going to get through it.”

The cattle sale is this Thursday at 11 a.m. at the Beatrice 77 Livestock (3320 N 6th Street).

There is also a gofundme set up to help the family financially.
