Wildfire Relief; Cattlemen are asking, “What can we do to help?”

By now you’re well aware of the devastating wildfires that destroyed most everything in their path on a million and a half acres across the states surrounding the Oklahoma panhandle. It goes without saying our thoughts and prayers are with the families that have suffered from the destruction of life and property resulting from these fires. Many have asked what can be done to help.

The Ohio Cattlemen’s Association has reached out to the cattlemen’s associations in the states most impacted, and the response has been that while all donations are sincerely appreciated, right now receiving additional hay is likely not the greatest priority for most of those affected. With so much infrastructure to repair and livelihoods to rebuild, the message is that today cash donations would be most helpful. As an aid in helping with the fire relief efforts, OCA has prepared a website that offers several options complete with contact information for those wishing to offer assistance: http://bit.ly/2mVIWhX
