Farmers deliver hay to Kansas area destroyed by wildfires


Two semi loads of hay were delivered Thursday, March 30, to Ashland, Kan., one of the worst hit areas for last month’s wildfires.

The local hay will be used by farmers in need of the hay for their animals.

The driving crew of Evan and Ian Dudenbostel, David Smiley, Derek Petersheim, Luke Adams and Matt Kearns left Wisconsin at midnight Thursday, drove straight there and back.

Kansas wildfires destroyed more than 650,000 acres in 21 counties last month, according to the Kansas Farm Bureau. In hopes of helping their fellow farmers, a group of young men from Steuben and Seneca came together last week to deliver two semi loads of hay to those affected by the disaster.

Leading the volunteer charge, brothers Evan, 23, and Ian Dudenbostel, 25, coordinated a 700-mile, overnight trip to Ashland, Kan., where the two semi loads of hay, a trailer load of fencing supplies, feed and cow water were taken as a goodwill gesture from southwest Wisconsin. They got online and found a feed company, which then directed them with further details.

“We had been hearing it on the news and thinking about it and we just decided we had to help,” Evan said, noting that Ashland was hit the worst. “Eighty percent of that county was burned—around 480,000 acres.”
