Fire Relief Effort for NW Oklahoma Cattlemen in Full Swing as Fellow Ranchers Extend Helping Hand

Wed, 08 Mar 2017 14:33:14 CST

Fire Relief Effort for NW Oklahoma Cattlemen in Full Swing as Fellow Ranchers Extend Helping Hand Many individuals are asking how they can help those affected by the recent wildfires in Northwest Oklahoma. There are several ways to help listed below.



A relief fund has been established by the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Foundation (OCF), a charitable arm of the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association.



"When unfortunate situations happen, it is humbling to see how generous folks can be to help those who are in need and we are happy to provide a place for those funds to be held," said Jeff Jaronek, Coordinator of the OFC. "We will coordinate with the Extension offices in each county to organize relief efforts in the area and to identify ranchers that are in need."



If you would like to donate to this relief effort, you can do so by mail or online. 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 www.okcattlemen.org.



OKC West Livestock Market, El Reno, Okla. is going to donate and auction off a calf on Wed. March 22 at noon with proceeds going to the fire relief established at the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Foundation.



Kripple E Cattle Co., owned by Kyle and Kelsy Eastwood has donated a heifer to auction off at Cherokee Sales Co. in Cherokee, Okla. The heifer will sell on Wed. March 29 at 11 a.m. with proceeds to go to the relief fund established by the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Foundation.



"We just want to help out and pray that we never have to face something so devastating on our operation," said Kyle Eastwood.



In addition to the relief fund, hay donations are also helpful. If you would like to donate hay or trucking services for hay, you can do so by contacting either the Harper County Extension Office at 580-735-2252, Buffalo Feeders at 580-727-5530 or Western Equipment at 580-254-0080 to make arrangements or provide trucking services.
