To all truckers, farmers, and agribusiness people:
Western North Dakota,Montana and parts of South Dakota are experiencing a historic drought. Stutsman County Farm Bureau contacted Tom Bedgar, Glen Rock, PA and myself asking us to find farmers with surplus hay to be donated to them and they will disburse it to the farmers most in need. Also, they are in need of truckers willing to donate their trucks and time to haul this hay to Dickerson, N.D. They are trying to put together enough money to pay for your fuel. Anybody willing to DONATE to their fuel fund will be apreciated. We have 24 loads of hay so far, and 12 trucks promised to haul it. So far it is owner/operators stepping up.
States that are closer to this area sent most of their surplus to the Kansas and Oklahoma wild fire area that is why they are looking so far away. Also, a lot of hay went out of N.D. to KS. about the time it quit raining. We need a lot more hay & trucks to make a dent in this disaster. Anything given to this effort is tax deductible and a receipt will be issued. Trailers that will work is a van,any kind of flat,walking floor or a 40 ft. dump.
