FINANCIAL RELIEF FUND FOR NORTHWEST OKLAHOMA FIRE DISASTER
Everyone by now is aware of the disastrous fires in northwest Oklahoma. And they are still on going. The loss of livestock and hay is hard to comprehend. The immediate need for those cows and calves still alive is something to eat (hay) and a means to get it delivered to the appropriate places.
A relief fund has been established by the Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Foundation, a charitable arm of the Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association (OCA). OCA will coordinate with the local extension offices in the affected counties to organize relief efforts and to identify ranchers that are in need.
The Association urges all members to participate in this effort. Make your check to the Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Foundation put “fire relief” in the memo line. Send to PO Box 82395, Oklahoma City OK 73148
If you know of any truckers that would donate their time and rig to deliver the hay, fuel costs will try to be paid by the relief fund, have them contact the Harper County Extension Office at 580-753-2252, Buffalo Feeders at 580-727-5530 or Western Equipment at 580-254-0080.
LET’S HELP OUT THOSE RANCHERS THAT HAVE LOST A LOT, IF NOT ALL, OF THEIR LIVELIHOOD.
