Dairy Farmers | Farmer stunned after people’s generosity with Adopt-A-Cow campaign saving his herd

A DROUGHT-stricken farmer has been astounded by people’s generosity after his social media SOS saved his herd in just six short weeks. Donations flooded in from across Australia and even the world.

The Adopt-A-Cow campaign was so successful, Country Valley dairy farm in Picton will now be able to feed its 130-strong herd, at a cost of $1350 per cow, until the end of September.

“I thought ‘Wow, this is going to work’,” Mr Fairley said as the donations began to roll in, with the entire herd now adopted.

“Some people put in $10, some $1350 and someone adopted five cows, one for each of his grandchildren.”

In return, Mr Fairley offered adoption certificates, naming rights and a farm visit to milk a cow and feed the calves, saying he had to “give back a bit”.

“Farmers don’t really like asking for help,” Mr Fairley said.
