Wisconsin farmers are doing all they can to help drought stricken ranchers out west.

Farmers are donating hay to people in Colorado who have been hit hard by wildfires and a drought. The conditions are so bad out there that it's hard for farmers to feed their cattle.

Twenty Three hundred tons of hay has been collected so far. Now WOW Logistics in Wisconsin Rapids is loading it on rail cars so it gets to the farmers out in Durango, CO.

Officials believe almost 2,000 animals will stay alive this winter because of the farmers' generous gift.
