Nonprofit brings flood-stricken Nebraska ranchers hay help

Charles City, Iowa – A non-profit organization is helping farmers and ranches affected by the catastrophic flooding in western Iowa and the majority of Nebraska.

Farm Rescue provides planting, haying, harvesting and livestock feeding assistance for free to farm and ranch families who have experienced a major illness, injury or natural disaster.

The organization is activating “Operation Hay Lift” to haul livestock feed.  The organization is needing hay donations, volunteer CDL drivers and monetary gifts to support the mission.

Affected producers are asked to fill out applications for hay hauling assistance at Farm Rescue’s website.

Those interested in making a donation or volunteering to drive can visit the same website or call 701-252-2017 or email

The North Dakota based company  has been helped 600 families since the organization’s inception in 2005.
