Meet the NSW hayrunners helping out QLD farmers | photos, videos

With just days left until the biggest hay run in history, local trucks are gearing up for the 1860 kilometre trip. 

The trip is expected to cost each truck around $2,000 in fuel. 

Drivers are donating their time to drive and their trucks while all hay has been donated by farmers. 

The mastermind behind the trip, farmer Brendan Farrell, has been coordinating the trip.

There will be 22 trucks towing 138 trailers full of hay.
