MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire’s conservation park The Briars has donated 950 bales of hay to the Need for Feed disaster relief program.

Need for Feed provides fodder to farmers affected by drought, fire and flood emergencies.

In 2018, 800 bales of hay from The Briars broad-acre paddocks were donated to farmers hit by drought. Last year 950 bales were donated.

The mayor Cr Sam Hearn said the small gesture would give some relief to bushfire affected communities and farmers.

The Lions Club project the Need for Feed coordinates the pick-up and delivery of hay.
