CULLMAN – The Cullman County Commission and Cullman County Soil and Water Conservation District recently secured a grant to bring hay into the county for livestock farmers who have been impacted by the drought. Now it's time to bring in the hay, and they're asking for help.

Commissioner Garry Marchman recently posted the following request to Facebook:
"We are looking for transporters for a drought relief effort for our local farmers. If there is anyone who can haul hay, I am looking for owner operators or anyone interested in hauling rolled hay. Most trips are from 150 to 350 miles. If you are interested, please message me and I will contact you ASAP. If you will also share this to someone who might be interested I would appreciate it. We can pay at reasonable rates. Thanks" (https://www.facebook.com/garry.marchman)
According to comments on the post, Marchman is primarily seeking help hauling large loads from out of state.
Those interested in transporting, and those needing help may also contact the Cullman County Conservation District at 256-734-1431. For those seeking help, the application deadline is Tuesday, Jan. 17 at 4 p.m.
