WA farmers dig deep for eastern states

Joanna Prendergast, Thursday March 6, 2014 - 11:06 EDT

Farmers across Western Australia have donated hundreds of tonnes of hay for drought stricken livestock producers in Bourke, New South Wales.

Sam Starcevich, from Salmon Gums, began an appeal for feed donations after speaking to a friend experiencing drought in Queensland.

What began as a few bales of her own, has turned into over 1,000 bales, donated from mainly the Esperance Shire.

Her appeal for hay bales wraps up today and she says she's about to start the next step of testing all the bales for weeds.

The hay is expected to arrive in Bourke on April 4.
