Oklahoma Cattlemen's Foundation Set to Distribute Fire Relief Funds Donated to Aid Cattlemen

Wed, 29 Mar 2017 11:11:00 CDT

Oklahoma Cattlemen's Foundation Set to Distribute Fire Relief Funds Donated to Aid Cattlemen In Oklahoma, more than 310 thousand acres burned causing a wide variety of losses to livestock, pastures, hay, fences and facilities. The Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Foundation, a 501(c)3, immediately set-up a fire relief fund in an effort to aid cattlemen in the relief process.


“We’ve received donations literally from all over the country and 100% of donations will be paid out directly to affected ranchers,” said Jeff Jaronek, Coordinator of the Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Foundation. “Donations are still coming in, but it’s time to start the distribution process.”



The distribution process starts with a simple application. Documentation should be attached to completed applications, such as; USDA-FSA Form 578, USDA-FSA program applications, receipts for veterinary care, receipts/estimates for fence repair, receipts for special feed purchase, etc. The application can be accessed at www.okcattlemen.org.



“All cattle producers are eligible, and encouraged, to apply,” Jaronek said.


Applications are due May 1, 2017 and will be reviewed by a committee to distribute the funds in an equitable manner.


According to Jaronek, “Assistance checks will be issued within 90 days of the fire.”


To donate visit www.okcattlemen.org or send a check with Fire Relief in the memo to Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Foundation, P.O. Box 82395, Oklahoma City, OK 73148.
