Michigan Farmers, Truckers Donate Hay after Kansas Wildfires

MASS CITY, Mich. (AP) — Truckers and farmers in Michigan's western Upper Peninsula plan to haul hay to help victims of a Kansas wildfire, which has burned more than 1,000 square miles. Marty Dehaan of Mass City tells The Daily Mining Gazette that many ranchers in southern Kansas "have lost everything." Dehaan is leading the effort with trucker and beef farmer Jan Streater of Lake Linden. Dehaan's father, Rick Dehaan, of Mass City is also aboard. Round bales of hay weigh 900 pounds or more. The hay will be hauled more than 1,000 miles to Kansas next Friday. Anyone wanting to help with donations, hay, or trucking can call (906) 458-8933.
