The Co-op News – Fodder Drive

The Casino Food Co-op is co-ordinating a massive emergency fodder drive across the North Coast.

As flood waters are still receding, Australia’s largest farmer owned Co-operative is taking vital steps to ensure that what is left of the region’s cattle, will survive.

Thousands of cattle have been lost in the past week, due to history breaking record high flood waters, that swept across the whole North Coast.

But many have survived. The race is now on to save those that survived the actual flood.

The Co-op’s Livestock Manager Heidi Hayes says time is critical and the Co-op is doing everything they can to support the local community.
