Straw run in SA: Farmers helping farmers

Gladstone and Orroroo

When our North SA Regional Recovery Officer Justine Major heard about the 'Share Our Stockfeed’ straw run from Gladstone to Orroroo in South Australia, she knew it was something we had to get behind.

Coordinated by the Laura Ag Bureau, a convoy of over 16 trucks delivered much needed fodder to farmers in Orroroo and surrounding areas in December, where they continue to receive below-average rainfall.

The straw run was a great display of mateship, with farmers helping farmers - and lots of other helpers involved, too!
