Hereford breeder Scott Downing was in a serious ranching accident working cows in Oregon on March 29. He is hospitalized at Providence Hospital in Medford, OR, with a traumatic head injury. Scott and his wife, Tracy, live in Butte Falls, OR, and they have two boys, Lane and Brandt.

Katie Colyer, LiveAuc, and friends of the Downing family are planning an online benefit auction to help offset unexpected family expenses the Downing family is facing during Scott’s hospitalization and recovery. The auction will open May 1 and the closeout will start at 6 p.m. May 5. If you have further questions about the auction, please contact Katie Colyer at katie@here or 208/599-2962. A link to the sale catalog has been placed at www. under the Scott Downing Benefit Auction. Please register and sign up today and help support a fellow cattleman and friend of the industry. — WLJ
