Cash and Hay Donations Needed for Woods County Ranchers Hurt by Anderson Creek Fire

Fri, 25 Mar 2016 14:52:46 CDT

Cash and Hay Donations Needed for Woods County Ranchers Hurt by Anderson Creek Fire A relief fund has been established by the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Foundation (OCF) to help Woods County Cattlemen who have been affected by the Anderson Creek Fire.

"We are coordinating with the Woods County Cattlemen's Association and the Woods County Extension office to identify area ranchers in need," said Jeff Jaronek, OCF Coordinator.

If you would like to donate to this relief effort, you can do so by mail or online. OCF is a charitable arm of the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association (OCA). Make checks payable to Oklahoma Cattlemen's Foundation and put "Fire Relief" in the memo line and send to P.O. Box 82395., Oklahoma City, OK 73148. To donate online, visit the OCA website by clicking here.

The Oklahoma Cattlemen's Foundation was founded in 1979 and is funded by personal contributions. The Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association exists to support and defend the state and nation's beef cattle industry. The OCA officers, board of directors and membership encourages you to join us in our advocacy efforts to ensure less government intervention, lower taxes and a better bottom line. For more information about OCA membership or activities visit www.okcattlemen.org.

Hay Donations

In Oklahoma, here is the latest information on hay donations provided by Greg Highfill of the Woods County extension office:

Many County Cattlemen's associations and private ranchers are inquiring about how to donate hay to area ranches affected by the wildfires this week. I have been asked to help coordinate the hay collection and distribution effort in Woods County. A collection point has been established west of Alva. There will be tractors and skid-steer available for unloading. Some loads will be sent directly to a ranch in need.

Hay Donations to Woods County:
Contact Greg Highfill - 580-430-6125
(call for drop point assignment)

Central Unloading
Biron Shirley trap
go west of Alva (on Hwy 64) to County Road 370 (Avard Rd, Shirley Farms sign) and North 1 mile

second location:
west to County Road 260, 1 mile south to Harper Road

If your cattlemen's association is interested in helping, please feel free to share my contact information (email and cell) with the appropriate individuals. Once the need has been met, we will suspend the collection efforts. Thank you for your assistance with this effort.

For those needing to buy hay in the short-term, there are hay brokers in the area to contact. In the Extension service, Tommy Puffinbarger Alfalfa Co Educator, has an excellent listing sellers that would be fairly nearby. Tommy Puffinbarger can be reached at 405-612-9357.


According to the latest update from the Kansas Livestock Association, there have been a large number of hay donations in that state so "Due to an incredible response in the first few days after the fire, hay needs of area ranchers have been met for the time being."
