Fresh Worries About Well Being of Cattle That Survived the Wildfires of Last Week- Tom Fanning Explains

Fresh Worries About Well Being of Cattle That Survived the Wildfires of Last Week- Tom Fanning Explains


Thousands of cattle died in the fire storm that swept across Oklahoma, Kansas and the northeastern corner of the Texas Panhandle last week- and now it appears that there are fresh health worries with the cattle that survived the fires initially. Cattle feeder Tom Fanning is the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association Northwest District Vice President- and he has been talking to ranchers that are now dealing with respiratory problems resulting from smoke inhalation- and with feet problems with hooves that were damaged by intense heat as they attempted to outrun the fire.


Fanning tells Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays that as a result- "we're going to have several more days of cattle losses that are a result of the fire." He adds that a lot of calves have been orphaned- and those calves are having to be fed by bottle.


Fanning's comments are featured in today's Beef Buzz, as Hays also updates the widespread relief efforts that are providing help to ranchers who lost a lot of their herd and infrastructure in a matter of hours.
