Throughout the colder months our feed bill increases, all of our residents need more straw for bedding and hay. Without doing a winter feed fundraiser we can’t afford the expensive bills.
Below is a break down of our out goings, this is solely feed and bedding. The reason why I break the total down is so everyone can see what I need to spend on feed and bedding to make it through to spring.
The total is for 3 months of feed, once spring arrives the cattle will be out and the horses will be back in the fields, our feed bill will then reduce.
I have broke it down into sections to be transparent on the expenses.
Sheep - 36 small bales : £162
- 24 bags dry feed : £192
Total = £354
Cows - 60 large bales hay : £1800
- 12 bales of straw : £300
- 36 bags dry feed £288
Total = £2388
Horses - 72 large bales hay £2160
Birds - 12 bags dry feed £96
Pigs - 12 bales of straw £300
- 252 bags dry feed £2016
Total = £2316
Grand total = £7314
I understand that it’s been a financially hard year for everyone, I do very much appreciated all of the help, support and generosity from our amazing supporters.
As a thank you gesture to everyone who donates £12 or more I’ll be sending you a A3 (open) sanctuary calendar to hang on your wall so every day you can see the animals which you have helped throughout winter.
