NEW PLAN: Burrumbuttock Hay Runners organiser Brendan Farrell says he will bring his next convey to southern Victoria to help struggling dairy farming families.

The Burrumbuttock Hay Runners are turning their attention to Victoria’s struggling dairy farmers.

Organiser Brendan Farrell said it was un-Australian that dairy farmers were expected to wake up each morning just to lose $800 an hour when they go to work to milk their cows.

“We’ll probably end up doing down to Warrnambool, Geelong way for the dairy industry because they can’t afford hay, they can’t afford food,” he said.

“We’ve got plenty of hamper packs and plenty of hay coming on board.”

Mr Farrell expected the dairy support run would be held in either January or February.

He announced his latest plan at the Henty Machinery Field Days on Thursday. It is the latest twist in what Mr Farrell describes as the Hay Runners’ tsunami.
