Tasmanians have united to send almost 1000 bales of hay to drought-affected areas on the mainland.

The Cowbiz Tassie Hay Run, organised by Robbie Edwards, only began last Tuesday, and has seen support pouring in from across the state. Whilst a lot of hay has already been donated, it will cost roughly $20,000 to get the hay across to the mainland.

Latrobe farmer Michael Perkins is helping with the Hay Run, and he speaks with Brian Carlton this morning about the need to fundraise and get this hay across Bass Strait.

If you would like to donate to help transport the donated hay can deposit directly into the CowBiz Tassie Hay Run account, BSB 017 500 (ANZ BANK), Account number 417181409.

For any further enquiries you can call Michael Perkins on 0417 592 992.
