Thank you so much, the money has been received and it was very welcome. It’s going to make a big difference for us. Thank you to you and everyone at Buy a Bale for all the selfless and unbelievable work you keeping farmers and their families going in this terrible time.
Thank you again
That’s a huge help. I’m not sure where to direct my gratitude but that’s a massive relief for me monetarily and it’s also amazing to know good people like u guys are helping me and other people in tough situations. Thank you so much and please pass on my thanks to the team, your doing amazing work
Thank you so much, It is quite challenging to have an asset and no cash flow. It will rain soon. Thank you again
You brightened our day. We are so very grateful for this most generous offer and cannot wait to find this mob of “Buy a Cow” cattle which we will be sure to send you a photo of. This will help us keep moving forward. To all the generous donors who have supported this drive thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Thank you so much for your assistance. We were able to feed weaner calves in the yard as a result of your generosity, since we had been unable to access any feed from anywhere, and had nothing to feed them. It is heart warming that so many Australians think of farmers and want to support us.
Thank you so much for your support. The generosity of so many caring people/companies keeps up our spirits during this most trying of times. In our community this drought is experienced by our generational farmers as being the worst in 100 years. With precious cattle having to be sold at never-before-seen bottom-of-the market prices, or have to be put out of their misery because of terminal drought-related issues, it’s very difficult to stay positive in these heart-breaking times as we wait for drought-breaking rain. Knowing that others are thinking about, caring about and acting positively for us, though, helps enormously. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.
A huge thank you to everyone who has contributed in any way to the tremendous help that has been delivered to drought stricken farmers across the country. Receiving a gift of a truck load of hay is absolutely heart warming and very good for the mind as well as a huge help in keeping our stock fed.
My sincere thanks
Thank You for all your support throughout the flood recovery, I am so grateful for the opportunity Rural Aid have given us. Without assistance from organisations like yourselves we would have struggled to afford to replace stock in the quantities that are required or not at all. These bulls will go a long way to re-establishing our breeder herd with surviving cows and heifers. In a way you can say that Rural Aid has helped put our herd back together. If you need any further information from me don’t hesitate to give me a call or send an email. I cannot Thank You enough for your generosity, but I can tell you that one day soon when we are back on our feet I intend to pay it forward and help Rural Aid support more farmers like us through their time of need.
Colin and Fiona Malone are the latest farmers to purchase cattle through Rural Aid’s Buy a Cow campaign. They purchased around 30 cattle with their $15,000 for their property near Kynuna, a small town between Winton and Cloncurry.
The first cattle from Rural Aid’s Buy a Cow campaign have been delivered to the property of Jeff and Debbie Nicols, 60 km’s North of Winton. The campaign was started to help farmers who lost cattle during the terrible floods in January up in NW Queensland.
The aim of Buy a Cow is to help farmers re-build their herds. It provides individual farmers with $15,000 to purchase cattle of their choosing. Rural Aid hopes to raise over $7.5 million to help over 500 farmers.
