Local Farmers Organizes Hay Donation for Kansas Wildfire Victims
Hats off to Vern and Lynn Rohrscheib for their efforts to collect and deliver nearly 240 round bales of hay to Kansas farmers and ranchers affected by wildfires. They also took a trailer load of 200 square bales, supplies, and a pallet of feed donated by Georgetown Ridge-Farm FFA. Thanks to all the area farmers that donated hay, trucks and money for fuel. As Lynn said, "Agriculture is a tight-knit community, and farmers are always willing to help those in need, whether it's down the road or across the country.
