Demand For Hay Takes Off As Drought And Bushfire Conditions Bite

Written by: The Cowra Phoenix

Give farmers a helping hand by buying a bail through Rural Aid as dry weather continues to affect our farmers

Australian farmers are requesting donated hay at a phenomenal rate. In the last month farmers have contacted Rural Aid requesting more than $1 million of hay.

Rural Aid was bracing for another wave of requests as devastating bushfires continue to burn across more than 100 locations in Queensland and NSW.

Based on Rural Aid’s experience of the previous drought and the Black Summer bushfires of 2019, demand for hay will accelerate rapidly as conditions deteriorate.

Mr Warlters said Rural Aid will need another huge and generous outpouring of support from the Australian community and business sector to meet the rapidly escalating demand for its services.

Australia’s most trusted rural charity is asking Australians to dig deep and rally together to help meet the significant challenge ahead. You can buy a bale by visiting or calling 1300 327 624.
