Officials say the money will go toward the Australia Farming Relief Fund and will directly provide goods and services to farmers.

Alltech says supplies will include hay, finished feed, feed supplements, silage, water troughs, fencing and non-perishable items. The supplies will be sent to Victoria, South Australia, New South Wales and Queensland.

The company says team members will also volunteer their time to work alongside farmers, rebuilding fences, repairing sheds and providing any on-farm support they need.

Donations to the Australia Farming Relief Fund, collected through the Pearse Lyons ACE Foundation, Alltech’s 501(c)(3) nonprofit, can be made here.
