Farmer Shannon Casburn from Bullio has to sell off nearly all of her cattle as feeding management is getting difficult for them.
"We have sheep and cattle on our farm. The remaining cattle will be sold off by the end of the year," she said.
Mrs Casburn is not alone.
There are several farmers who are being forced to make such decisions during difficult circumstances.
After hearing about the Rural Aid program through social media, Mrs Casburn signed up for it around 12 months back.
"We have received some gift vouchers. It helps us with groceries. It's good to have someone ring you and say how things are going," she said.

Founded in 2015, Rural Aid is an Australian charity which started after Buy a Bale drought fundraising campaign was successful.
Rural Aid coordinator Sharon Robertson said that there are 170 hampers will be given to farmers registered with the charity.
"The hampers include food items and items like stuffed toys which have been donated," she said.
"We have contacted farmers in Goulburn, Crookwell, Yass and Braidwood with details like address and time when they can pick up the hampers."
The food hampers include items like milk, tea, coffee, rice, jam, noodles and some canned food.
The response she has received has been good so far with several farmers driving down to pick up hampers.
The boxes can be picked up from 6 Hovell Street in Goulburn on November 6-7 from 9am-4pm.
Salvation Army Corps officer Captain Tuesday McCall said that Rural Aid got in touch with them as they didn't have any place to store hampers.
"So, we offered the space to them and were happy to be around when they would come to pick it up. We want to make sure more and more farmers are able to get the benefit," she said.
"If there are any farmers with kids that are struggling for Christmas, they can get in touch with me and the Salvation Army may be able to support them with hampers and toys."
People can register for the Rural Aids program online or contact coordinator Sharon Robertson on 0408613405 on Thursday and Friday.
She will be present in Hume MP Angus Taylor's Goulburn office at 189 Auburn Street on Friday from 10am-3pm offering information and advice to local farmers about assistance that is available to them during these tough times.
