Farm rescue looking for help, hay to aid Nebraska ranchers


Farm Rescue is asking for volunteers and hay donations to take to flood-stricken Nebraska ranchers.

“Operation Hay Lift” was started in 2017 to help drought-stricken ranchers in the Upper Midwest. That year, dozens of volunteer truckers hauled hundreds of loads of hay to the region.

Now, the organization wants to do the same for Nebraska ranchers dealing with widespread flooding after the massive late-winter storm.

The Nebraska Farm Bureau says farm and ranch losses could reach $1 billion in the state. 

Donations can be made through the Farm Rescue website here.

If you have questions, you can contact Farm Rescue here.

Farm Rescue is also looking for volunteer drivers with CDL licenses. Contact Levi Wielenga, Operations Manager at or 712-389-1024.
