DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) - A farm aid nonprofit says nine trucks filled with donated hay will leave Dickinson Saturday bound for flood-stricken Nebraska.

Farm Rescue says it expects to deliver the hay to a drop off site in Fullerton on Sunday. The organization’s spokesman Dan Erdmann tells the Minot Daily News they delivered their first load of hay earlier this week to Nebraska.

The North Dakota-based Farm Rescue recently activated “Operation Hay Lift” to haul livestock feed to Nebraska ranchers affected by flooding, resurrecting a program first used nearly two years ago to help cattle producers facing drought conditions in the Upper Midwest..

The Nebraska Farm Bureau estimates that farm and ranch losses in that state could reach $1 billion.
