Ranchers in Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas Assisted by Dow AgroSciences Donation

Ranchers in Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas Assisted by Dow AgroSciences Donation
   

The recent wildfires that roared across the Southern plains caused unprecedented damage to ranch land, cattle, wildlife and personal property. Dow AgroSciences, through The Dow Chemical Company Foundation, is helping ranchers through donations to the Kansas Livestock Foundation, Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Foundation, and Texas Farm Bureau Agriculture Research and Education Foundation.

"It is hard to imagine the devastation of the millions of burned acres and the associated tragedies in loss of life, homes, and livestock," says Rajan Gajaria, Dow AgroSciences Vice President, North America and Latin America. "Our hearts go out to our many longtime customers and friends in this region who have been impacted. We hope our support can play a part in farmers and ranchers getting back on their feet."

"Kansas ranchers affected by wildfire greatly appreciate the generous donation of Dow AgroSciences to the Kansas Livestock Foundation relief fund," said Kansas Livestock Association President David Clawson of Englewood. "It’s going to be a long road to recovery for those who lost cattle, fence, feed resources and, in some cases, homes, but this kind of generosity will greatly help in the rebuilding effort and gives ranchers the emotional support needed to keep moving forward."

"It’s humbling and downright overwhelming how generous individuals and companies, like Dow AgroSciences, have been to help ranchers recover from this devastating natural disaster," said Jeff Jaronek, coordinator, Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Foundation. "The healing process will be slow, but I’m proud to be part of this industry that is quick to help each other when times are tough. We want the contributors to know that 100 percent of the fire relief donation funds will be distributed directly to ranchers affected by the wildfires."

"Texas farmers and ranchers–especially those affected by recent fires in the Panhandle–are encouraged by the support and generosity of companies like Dow AgroSciences. These donations will do more than replace the buildings and fences lost. It will help farmers and ranchers rebuild their lives and businesses to ensure a solid foundation for Texas agriculture now and into the future," said Russell Boening, president of Texas Farm Bureau.
