A fencing relief program for farmers hit by the Wunghnu fire has been organised by the UDV.
Co-ordinator Peter Cooper has been appointed to gather names of farmers who have lost fencing and to co-ordinate offers of assistance from other farmers, individuals or groups.
Under the arrangements, farmers will pay for materials while volunteers remove the old fire damaged fences and put up the new ones.
‘‘We don’t want to leave it too long before we get organised,’’ Mr Cooper, a former Numurkah farmer said.

The CFA has estimated the fire swept through about 9000
