Ohio farmers from various parts of the state made the long trek to Nebraska at the end of March to help fellow farmers as they recover from the worst flooding in the state’s history.
A “bomb cyclone” left behind unprecedented flooding in many parts of the Midwest, with more than $1 billion in damage in Nebraska alone, as well as long-term disruptions to markets throughout the country and devastation for farm families.
Anyone who wishes to make a contribution to help Nebraska farmers recover can do so through the Nebraska Farm Bureau disaster assistance fund set up for relief efforts. Ohio Farm Bureau’s Young Ag Professionals Committee also has donated $1,000 to the relief effort.
Ohioan’s help was gratefully received in the Cornhusker state. Visit links to media coverage of relief efforts by Ohio farmers below:
