Hay Convoy To Assist Drought-Stricken Farmers In New South Wales

A man from Albury has asked for donations of hay bales to assist farmers in north, New South Wales who have been suffering through a drought.

According to Brendan Farrell, a truck driver based in Griffith – he has personally been able to collect 17 truck loads of hay (about 700 square bales and 70 round bales – enough to help around 30 farmers) to contribute to the ‘Burrumbuttock to Bourke Hay Run.”

Farrell decided to organize the run after he was shown an inspiring sense of community and assistance after his wife was diagnosed with a serious illness.

The 17-truck convoy plans to leave Riverina next week (on February 7th) – Farrell has also requested that farmers the run passes on the boarder donate any hay that they can.
