Rural Aid drops 275 tonnes of feed at Karoonda through Buy a Bale program

Twenty-seven farmers from the Karoonda East Murray district and surrounds have shared more than 275 tonnes of feed dropped off to help them through the dry year.

Rural Aid arranged the drop of more than 200 tonnes of hay and 75 tonnes of pellets at the town’s old sheep saleyards on Thursday, with help from the local council and WSB Distributors.

The feed, worth more than $120,000, was collected through Rural Aid’s “Buy a Bale” drive.

Primary Industries and Regions SA and stock feed manufacturers JT Johnson and Sons were also represented at the gathering.
