THE WHY

In the aftermath of Cyclone Gabriele, a devastating natural disaster that caused significant damage to farming communities in many regions of New Zealand, an inspiring initiative called "Commence the Re-Fence" has been launched to provide support to the most affected farmers in rebuilding their fencing. This collaborative effort brings together CaseIH and New Holland, who have generously donated two tractors to facilitate the reconstruction process.

COMMENCE THE RE-FENCE

Over the next five months, the Federated Farmers "Farmy Army " of volunteers will work alongside the donated tractors to rebuild fencing on 100 farms that Cyclone Gabrielle severely impacted. Stevenson Taylor, Hawkes Bay are keen participants in the support of farmers and growers, providing Post Rammers to ensure efficient and effective fence installations.

The primary objective of the Re-Fence initiative is to restore critical infrastructure, enabling affected farmers to resume their agricultural activities and rebuild their lives. To support the materials required for the fencing reconstruction, a dedicated Givealittle page has been set up. This platform allows individuals, businesses, and organisations to contribute and make a meaningful impact on recovery efforts by providing much-needed resources.

GIFT A TRACTOR

At the end of the five-month initiative, CaseIH and New Holland will demonstrate their commitment to the farming communities by gifting the two tractors to two farmers in the most heavily affected areas. This gesture recognises the resilience and determination displayed by the affected farmers and aims to provide long-term support for their agricultural endeavours.

 

The Farmy Army has a strong track record of uniting volunteers and providing invaluable assistance to rural communities during times of crisis and their involvement in the Re-Fence initiative ensures effective coordination and execution of the rebuilding efforts, maximising the impact on the affected farms.
