The Wadena County Farm Bureau collected hay bales at Midwest Machinery in Wadena on February 6-8, to donate to the Dawson/Wibaux County Farm Bureau to help farmers and ranchers feed their cattle.
The goal of the WCFB was to collect eight loads of hay. About 205 hay bales, roughly seven loads of hay, were donated to the cause.
“At this point there have been two loads of hay delivered,” said Nathan Roth, WCFB secretary and treasurer.
They will continue to collect monetary donations through the end of February.
“We are planning to use some of the funds to purchase enough hay here to make the last load full. The rest will be used to purchase hay closer to the destination to reduce the cost of transportation,” said Roth. . .
