Farm Credit Canada (FCC) and the Ontario Federation of Agriculture (OFA) have both made contributions to the Hay West 2021 initiative to help cover shipping costs to send hay to drought-stricken farmers in the Prairie provinces.

The 2021 Hay West initiative, organized by Canadian Federation of Agriculture (CFA), is moving hay from eastern Canada to the west to help feed livestock impacted by the 2021 drought.

The OFA has chipped in $50,000 to the initiative, while FCC has contributed $25,000. FCC has also agreed to provide an additional $25,000 if CFA is able to secure an additional $25,000 contribution from another source.

All proceeds from donations go directly to paying the shipping costs for moving hay across Canada and the logistical support needed to do so, CFA says. Right now, tens of thousands of bales are awaiting shipment, but demand is still high.

“CFA would like to thank both FCC and OFA for their generous contributions. FCC has supported farmers for a long time through their services, and we greatly appreciate the help they are offering today. The donation from OFA continues a long history of farmers helping out their colleagues from all across Canada whenever they are hit by devastating and uncontrollable circumstances,” says CFA president, Mary Robinson.
