Town chairman on mend after accident on his farm

Ozaukee Press staff

    Town of Saukville Chairman Don Hamm escaped serious injury when he fell off a piece of farm machinery recently, cutting open his leg and breaking two ribs.

    Hamm, who operates a dairy farm at 4576 Blueberry Rd., said an infection set in after the incident, forcing him to stay in the hospital a few days, but that he is recovering.

    “I was told to not work for a couple days,  but I could probably go back to work now,” he said Friday. “But I’ll take it easy.”

    Hamm said he was in the field when he fell but was able to call his daughter on his cell phone. She came out and took him to the emergency room at Aurora Medical Center in Grafton.

    He said his injury will not interfere with fulfilling any of his duties as town chairman.

    Hamm was elected chairman in June 2014 in a special meeting to fill the remainder of former town chairman Barb Jobs’ unexpired term. Jobs resigned earlier.

    He was most recently re-elected in April. He did not have an opponent.

    The Hamm farm, known as Sandy Loam Dairy, has been in the family for six generations, since 1852.

    Hamm has been state president of the National Farmers Organization and treasurer of the Ozaukee County Dairy Promotion and is an active member of Divine Savior Church.
