Four area FFA chapters, eight individuals from the community, and students and staff from London High School donated livestock supplies for distribution to farmers and ranchers in Nebraska.

A bomb cyclone swept through Nebraska in March, causing more than $1 billion in flood losses, leaving many counties underwater. Because it is calving season, ranchers have suffered nearly $400 million in cattle losses.

Farm Bureau members and Young Ag Professionals from across Ohio gathered supplies to help those in the areas affected by the flooding. The London FFA served as a collection point for the Ohio Rural America Relief Effort, which transported the donated supplies to North Bend, Neb., on March 29.

Among the supplies picked up in London were medication, needles, syringes andelectrolytes. The relief effort focused on first aid, clean-up, fence repair, personal hygiene and livestock health items.
