Kansas farmers reach out to Oklahoma wildfire victims

Updated:
PLAINVILLE, Kan. (AP) -- Kansans are working to help Oklahoma livestock farmers whose pastures and hay supplies have been burned by wildfires.

Ted Swafford of Plainville, Kansas, has organized a drive to ship donated prairie hay, feed and alfalfa to Oklahoma farmers. At least 15 farmers from Rooks and Osborne counties have contributed bales.

Swafford expects to meet a goal of 240 bales, or about $8,500 worth of hay.

Swafford says they'll be sent to Lincoln and Bryan counties in central and southern Oklahoma. Swafford is trying to secure trucks to deliver the bales, and cash donations also are being collected for gas. As many as eight tractor-trailers could be needed.
