OMAHA, Neb. — Farm Rescue, a non profit organization that provides planting, haying, harvesting and livestock feeding assistance free of charge to farming and ranch families who have experienced a major illness, injury, or natural disaster, is ramping up hay relief efforts in response to recent severe flooding to Nebraska.

Farm Rescue is activating "Operation Hay Lift" to haul much-needed livestock feed to ranchers affected by the natural disaster.

The organization is calling for hay donations, volunteer CDL drivers and monetary gifts to help support the mission, which will last throughout the next several weeks.

Affected ranchers are asked to fill out applications for hay hauling assistance, which will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Applications can be obtained at farmrescue.org.
