Cattlemen's Foundation Encourages Ranchers Affected by Wildfires to Apply for Assistance by May 1

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 14:24:11 CDT

Cattlemen's Foundation Encourages Ranchers Affected by Wildfires to Apply for Assistance by May 1 To date, $952,000.00 has been donated to the Fire Relief fund set up by the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Foundation, a 501(c)3, to aid Oklahoma ranchers following the wildfires in early March.



"100 percent of the fire relief donation funds will be distributed directly to ranchers affected by the wildfires within 90 days of the fires and we want to remind ranchers that the application deadline is fast approaching," said Jeff Jaronek, Coordinator of the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Foundation.



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



"We strongly encourage all producers who have suffered loss to apply for assistance," Jaronek said.



In Oklahoma, more than 310 thousand acres burned causing a wide variety of losses to livestock, pastures, hay, fences, facilities and homes. It has been estimated that the economic impact of the fire exceed $16 million.



"We've received donations literally from all over the country and contributions continue to come in daily," Jaronek said.



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