Buy a Bale proceeds for drought-affected farmers flow to first South Australian producers

For farmer Karl Zerner, the phone call from the Buy a Bale drought appeal was a lot to take in.

"It took me about 10 minutes for it to sink in. A lot of emotions, a lot of emotions," he said.

Mr Zerner is one of the first farmers in South Australia to receive free hay from the Buy a Bale campaign, which helps drought-hit producers.

He said his Mount Mary property, two hours north of Adelaide, has suffered a season as bad as anyone could remember.
