Multiple Semi Loads of Whole Cotton Seed Valued at $20K Donated to Feed Cattle of Wildfire Victims

Thu, 06 Apr 2017 16:23:57 CDT

Multiple Semi Loads of Whole Cotton Seed Valued at $20K Donated to Feed Cattle of Wildfire Victims Producers Cooperative Oil Mill has stepped up to help the ranchers affected by the recent wildfires in Oklahoma by donating 100 tons of whole cotton seed.



"Just in Oklahoma, more than 300,000 acres were burned during the recent fires and most of that was ranch land," said Austin Rose, CEO of Producers Cooperative Oil Mill. "We understand that cattlemen depend upon the forage in the pastures to support their cattle. We're donating the whole cotton seed to help feed and sustain good nutrition in those cattle until the green grass comes on."



The whole cotton seed is valued at $200 per ton. 100 tons is the equivalent to 4 semi-truck loads.



"Harvey Schroeder, Executive Director of the Oklahoma Cotton Council, helped coordinate this donation. Together, we've been coordinating the trucking to deliver the whole cotton seed to the ranchers in need," Rose said.



Bates Bros. Trucking and Tony Gilbreath Trucking generously donated the freight to deliver the whole cotton seed to the fire stricken areas in the Oklahoma Panhandle.



"It's humbling and down-right overwhelming how generous individuals and companies have been to help ranchers recover from this devastating natural disaster," Jeff Jaronek, Coordinator of the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Foundation. "The generosity has been given in many forms including: hay, cattle feed, fencing supplies, food, fuel, household goods and even services such as trucking and fence building."



A Fire Relief Fund has been set up by the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Foundation. To donate, 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 or donate online at okcattlemens.org.



"100% of Funds collected for fire relief will be distributed directly to ranchers who apply for assistance," said Jaronek.
