Wattle Range Council will be helping drought affected farmers in New South Wales by donating over 75 large square bales of hay, filling more than three semi-trailers.
The bales of hay have been cut from pasture grown on Council land irrigated as part of the Penola Community Wastewater Management Scheme.
In an amazing gesture, Council employees David Taylor and Daryl Smith have volunteered to drive Council’s semi-trailer to Broken Hill in their own time later this month to deliver a load of hay to those in need.
Council's semi will be joining others from the district in a convoy organised by Millicent grazier Phillip ‘Jarrah’ Bowman.
Mayor Peter Gandolfi commended the initiative: "All those involved in this feed drive deserve to be praised for their efforts in helping others in need."
