PA Farmers and Dinkel Implement Help Get Hay to Verdigre

VERDIGRE, NE — The quest to get hay to hungry livestock in flood-ravaged Nebraska continues.  Nebraska farmers got assistance over the weekend from a unique collection of donors.  Farmers in central Pennsylvania’s Lycoming County came together to gather donated hay.  Agriculture machinery maker New Holland donated and connected the P-A farmers to New Holland dealers in Nebraska, like Norfolk’s Dinkel Implment.  Dinkel donated to the cause and helped unload the eight loads of hay in Verdigre.  They left a JCB machine in Verdigre for the stockyards to use for the next couple weeks.

Dinkel worker Lucas Hoffman says farmers’ needs have shifted to a shortage of fencing supplies.  He says a movement is already underway in Pennsylvania to donate another batch of equipment.
