The devastating effects of the recent Queensland floods has resulted in many farmers losing their entire cattle herds but a new campaign hopes to give producers the boost needed to rebuild their livestock.
Rural Aid have launched the Buy A Cow campaign that allows every day Australians to donate money which will be given to farmers to buy a few cattle.
The charity will allocate 100 per cent of the funds raised to the purchase of new cattle.
Many Queensland farmers lost their core breeders in the floods.
It can take up to two years to generate an income and it can take years to re establish cattle blood lines.
Farmers will be given up to $15,000 each to assist in their restocking in addition to other grants Rural Aid is making towards bill payments, groceries and fodder assistance.
Rural Aid, through its Buy a Bale program, sourced and delivered almost 2500 bales of emergency hay into north-west Queensland immediately after the flood waters receded and is continuing to supply additional fodder as demand requires.
Over the last six months Rural Aid has spent over $13 million supporting farmers in drought affected areas with fodder drops, water, financial assistance and mental health counselling services.
