Operation Drought Relief

Providing drought relief to farmers and their families

AN OVERVIEW OF RRT'S ODR INITIATIVES FOR AUSTRALIA'S DROUGHT STRICKEN FARMERS

Farmers Community Connect

As long term, record low rainfall continues to severely limit water sources across Australia, RRT launched a new initiative to support drought stricken farmers, Farmers Community Connect (FCC).

RRT is once again responding to the major environmental crises, this time supplying over 2,000 tons in total of livestock pellets to more than 2,000 approved farming families across rural NSW and QLD, including Nymagee, Warren, Tullamore, Trundle, Narrabri and Condobolin. This supplement is designed to feed livestock such as sheep and cattle, providing them with the protein, energy, and nourishment they need to help them survive in the ongoing, harsh conditions.

In 2020, RRT will be making our way to eight new locations commencing January 30 in Cobar, NSW and then to Warren, St George, Inverell, Mungindi, Bourke, Goondiwindi and Walgett.

If you’re a farmer that’s been affected by the drought, you can register to receive support through RRT’s Farmers Community Connect initiative. Click here to register. Please ensure you register before the registration cut off date for your selected pick up location.

Approved recipients are to collect their donated supplies from the drop-off point in their region on the scheduled date.

RRT welcomes farmers to enjoy a well-deserved farmers community day out and receive a 1-ton bulker bag of livestock pellets.
