    West Michigan Convoy is Bringing Supplies to Devastated Farmers

    West Michigan convoy is bringing supplies to devastated farmers
    By Lori Timmer/The Holland Sentinel • Today at 1:00 PM

    Fully loaded, 23 rigs pulled out of the Wayland Hopkins Livestock Auction on April 6. Each displaying an American flag, they were Kansas and Oklahoma bound.

    Loaded with hay, barbed wire, fence posts and other supplies, the convoy of farmers pulled out of the wet, muddy parking lot and headed west to help fellow farmers and ranchers who were victims of the March wildfires that scorched more than 1.5 million acres.

    A banner attached to a round bale of hay summed up the mission: “God Bless America — Wildfire Relief — Michigan Convoy — From our farms to yours.”
