HELPING OUR FARMERS - WHAT WE ARE RAISING MONEY FOR…
Deb from The Grayzing Point has initiated a concept to identify and assist a particular farming community and a single farmer in the central west of NSW who are in need of support to manage with the crisis of the drought.
The community region / township identified is on level 4 water restrictions with less than 19% town water supply left. The farms surrounding this township have no water left in their dams. No water for their stock also means no hydration or feed and ultimately death to stock unless costly water and food supplies are bought in.
The farmer identified, is 3rd generation on the property, on which their family are also buried. They have been forced to sell 2/3rds of their stock at prices way below actual value to cover costs and externally purchase food and water in order to sustain the remaining third of their stock. This food and water will last less than 4 weeks.
The remaining third of their stock is their only chance of breading for the future, and are dying daily
The people are washing in bore water which has its own health adversities.
With no rain forecast, no food will grow and stock won’t feed or drink which will force this farmer to sell a century long bloodline of stock and ultimately the property and resting place of their family. This will occur in the coming two months.
AS A COMMUNITY LET’S DO WHAT WE CAN SAVE THIS FARM
