Farmers in the Katandra West area are behind a unique fundraising project.November 28, 2012 12:05pm
When the call went out for help to raise a local contribution towards Katandra West Community Centre, hay contractor Steve Black thought to himself: ‘‘If I can’t raise a few dollars by making hay, it’s time to give the job away’’.
Other contractors and farmers thought the same and pitched in to form a group that has grown and baled hundreds of rolls of wheaten hay.
They baled the crop only recently and are now looking for buyers who can finish off the project by paying a good price for the hay.
‘‘We tried to work it out so no-one had to do all the work,’’ Mr Black said.
‘‘We had about six of us sowing, cutting and baling.
‘‘It was hard to estimate how much we could raise because everything is in the hands of the weather and we didn’t know how much in the way of seed and fertiliser we could get donated.
‘‘It turned out the costs were zero, so we’re hoping to raise between $8000 and $10
Anyone wanting to buy the hay can contact GV Grain and Fodder.
