Bales of hay are headed to Plaquemines Parish to help cattle and horses impacted by Hurricane Ida.

The Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry says that the hay will be used to feed cattle and horses stranded following the storm.

LDAF says the delivery was made possible thanks to their partners at the Louisiana Farm Bureau Federation, Louisiana Cattlemen's Association, the LSU AgCenter, Louisiana Veterinary Medical Association Equine Committee, Texas Equine Veterinary Association, Texas A&M Veterinary Association and The Foundation for the Horse.

The Louisiana Farm Bureau Livestock Advisory Committee is again working to help ranchers through a natural disaster by reengaging its hay clearinghouse in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida. Through the hay clearinghouse, the volunteers and staff of the Louisiana Farm Bureau connect ranchers who need hay or pasture for their cattle with people who have hay to donate, pasture space available or the ability to transport hay.

If you need hay or pasture for your cattle, or if you have hay, pasture space or the ability to transport hay you’d like to donate, call (225) 922-6200 or visit and provide your name, contact information and location. A member of the Louisiana Farm Bureau staff will then connect those in need of hay or pasture with the closest source of help.
