We just want to say a big thank you for the financial assistance that Rural Aid has recently given. We are extremely grateful and it certainly does make a difference.
Words can’t express our gratitude for the support of ‘Rural Aid’, something we have never considered before. We have always ‘got by’, but our family suggested we apply for this. We are overwhelmed by this generosity, thanks again.
Thank you sincerely Rural Aid for the $1500 assistance provided to us. We are so grateful as we missed out on most of the rain last week and will be feeding cattle for some time as this is our highest priority with spending on feed. Any help towards our expenses is greatly appreciated and keeps us in a positive mood however hard it gets. Thank you kindly
We would like to thank you very much and appreciate all that you have done. It has been a tough time and still on going. Hopefully we will see a break here shortly.
Thanking you so very much
Very much appreciated and very helpful. Cannot tell you how much this helps with trying to maintain our breeding ewes as we go into winter.
Thank you so much for the help you have given me once again. You have helped to save my sanity as well as assisting with the budget. Thankfully we have had some rain finally and the dams are working well even though the dams are not full. It sure has taken the pressure of water worries off my shoulders and I can move the cattle around for the green pic which is there at present. We do need more rain so if you have a rain dance that works or if you believe in prayer, please keep us in mind.
Fires in Tasmania and Western Australia. Drought continues in NSW. Drought now floods in Queensland. I don’t know how the farming and rural communities pull through and continue, but thank goodness they do so that those of us that live in the cities and suburbs can still purchase food items in our supermarkets. Very happy to donate to charity organisations such as Buy a Bale who help farmers and their communities during times of natural disasters like those being experienced in so many areas of Australia. Australia – it’s a beautiful country, but it can be a tough in the country!
Thank you to all the farming families, rural communities and the volunteers who help and support them.
I wanted to take the time to write to sincerely thank you for your drought assistance. The gift cards that you sent were very much appreciated.
As we are about to go into 8 years of drought with minimal to no useful rain in the past 2 years, things have been extremely difficult and it is also difficult to express how much the assistance / support is appreciated. Please pass on my sincere thank you to the citizens and businesses that have contributed to Buy A Bale.
We are a family with 4 young kids and you can’t even believe have much your help is appreciated. To not have to think about where the money will come from for our next family food shop is an amazing feeling.
We both come from farming family’s in WA and made the move to cowell 8 years ago and started our own farming journey 3 year ago, just as we were thinking we may be getting in front this year has definitely hit us hard. The support from buy a bale and rural aid is amazing still can’t believe we were lucky enough to receive your help it is greatly appreciated!!!!
So from the bottom of our hearts thank you so much for you help.
To all the volunteers and kind people who donated money to the buy a bale campaign, I would like to thank them for the coupons I recently received.
I am, as I am know you are aware, mentally & physically exhausted trying to keep a core herd of our much loved Devon cattle going through this extraordinary drought. Of course I am only one of thousands of farmers in this circumstance and indeed am luckier than many as I do have bore water.
It makes a big difference knowing that people care about what is happening on the land. Again a big thank you.
Thank you for all that you and your wonderful team did here. I look back over the past week, and even though it was a very tough emotional time for our family, we will always remember how wonderful your team was, and how much they helped us in every good and perfect way. We can’t thank them enough for their caring support.
I cannot express how grateful we are for what you and your friends have done for us. We have had some very tough times in recent years – on a personal level with ill health matters etc, and then the drought has been crippling. I wonder if we would have been able to hang on without the help
I would like to say a big thank you for your help and kindness. This is very big help for us, it will go a long way for us. I would like to thank all that made it possible for us to receive the hay, The hay maker, volunteers, workers and the truck drivers.
We are so thankful for the hard work and persistence you show to provide us with food
Thank you Buy a Bale for the opportunity to support our farmers. We live in a drought affected community and see the starving cattle being drove along the roadside, we see the town getting quieter as business slows because farmers are struggling, we see the land void of fodder
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 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.
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.
