His arm was injured earlier this month in a beet lifter mishap.

Randy Coauette of Crookston, who injured his arm earlier this month while working near a running sugar beet lifter, won't have to worry about getting his sugar beets out of the ground this year.

Friday morning, in an effort led by fellow farmer Chris Cournia, 64 trucks, 10 8-row lifters, 5 12-row lifters and 8 rotabeeters will converge on Coauette's 380 acres of sugar beets and harvest them.
