Trucking Needed to Transport Hay to Ranchers in NW Oklahoma Affected by Recent Wildfires

Thu, 09 Mar 2017 17:27:14 CST

Trucking Needed to Transport Hay to Ranchers in NW Oklahoma Affected by Recent Wildfires Executive Vice President of the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association Michael Kelsey, reached out to the Oklahoma ag community today with a couple updates regarding the relief efforts being made to help ranchers affected by the wildfires of Northwest Oklahoma.


"As you know by now, many ranchers are in dire need of feed resources," Kelsey stated. "Primarily hay for their cattle to survive until the grass begins to grow later this year. To that end, many ranchers from other parts of the state are donating hay to send to their neighbors up in the northwest.


"The current bottleneck in that process is trucking. We desperately need trucking in order to transport that hay to the northwest."


If you are aware of trucking resources, please share that information with the Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association by calling 405-235-4391 or by calling any of the hay drop locations listed below.

Also, Kelsey noted instructions on how to make a financial contribution.


"For the next two weeks the Livestock Exchange at the Oklahoma National Stockyards will offer folks the opportunity to donate to the fire relief fund on sale days. Folks can drop a check made out to the Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Foundation off at the main office of the Oklahoma City Stockyards. 100% of the funds will go to relief efforts for ranchers affected by the devastating fires."


Kelsey offers his sincere thanks on behlaf of those affected and the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association, for any contributions.
