Hanson, a retired farmer from North Dakota, has created messages in his field using his plow before.

However, this time, he used his neighbor's cows, who live across the road from his farm in Edgeley.

In 2017, Hanson made headlines around the world when he plowed the message “We Stand For the National Anthem,” and caught President Donald Trump's attention.

“Earlier this week when Hanson’s neighbor was feeding about 150 of his cows on Richard Mooch Ranch, he did it in a way so the cows would gather to form a cross. He told Hanson about it, and he used his drone to take a picture of them,” WTTV TV reported.

In an interview with Fox News, Hanson said: "It's the Christmas season and I thought that would be really nice if he put the feed down in a sign of the cross and he did."

The great-grandfather decided to form the cross to remind everybody that the reason for Christmas is the birth of Jesus.

Aside from the cross in his field, Hanson also has a cross with solar lights erected in his own cow pasture along U.S. Highway 281.

As reported by Fox News, consistently for the "Christmas on Main" occasion in their town, Hanson and his wife, Darlene, take on the appearance of Mr. and Mrs. Claus and visit the nearby nursing home. 

In 2017, Hanson made headlines around the world when he plowed the message “We Stand For the National Anthem,” and caught President Donald Trump's attention.

"Thank you Gene Hanson — a GREAT American (and farmer) who is standing up for our flag, our anthem, and our country!" the president wrote on Facebook.

Hanson also created the Prince symbol in his field after the demise of the legendary singer. Prince died on April 21, 2016, due to Accidental fentanyl overdose.
