Todd Laudenklos often visits the Lolli Livestock Market in Macon, Missouri to not only sell his cattle, but to also help with the event.

Blake Coble, a good friend of Laudenklos, shared what happened at the event last week.

"One of my dear friends lost his whole herd (27 head) of Watusi cattle in all the flooding in Nebraska.

During the Watusi sale in Macon Missouri the owners of the sale barn stopped the sale and brought him in the sale ring and bought a bull and donated the profits to him so he could build his herd back up.

The person that bought the bull immediately donated the profits again and resold the bull again. Shortly after a gentlemen bought him another Watusi and donated it to him.

After that, they took donations for Him and I was shocked.... Person after person stood up and donated $100... $100....$200...$100...$100. This went on for 20 minutes and at least 50 or 60 folks.

He was trying to be strong, but I saw tears flowing from his eyes.

This is how I know there is still so many good people in this world!"

In total, more than $5,000 was raised that night for Laudenklos, KHQA reported.
