Montana Wildfire Victims Receive a Helping Hand From Ag Community Relief's Wire Roundup Event

Fri, 06 Oct 2017 12:10:20 CDT

Montana Wildfire Victims Receive a Helping Hand From Ag Community Relief's Wire Roundup Event Thousands of miles of barbed wire fence was destroyed in Montana this past summer due to one of the worst wildfire seasons on record. With millions of acres burned, Ag Community Relief has established the "Western Wire Roundup" in effort to help western ranchers rebuild.



Having already sent twelve loads of hay to the region, Ag Community Relief will be collecting donations over the next few months to send a full semi-tractor trailer load of Sheffield barbed wire fence (560 rolls), that meets or exceeds ASTM Class 1 standards, to the farmers and ranchers affected by the wildfires. Stockmen's Feed Bunk, a ranch supply company based in Boise City, OK, sold fencing supplies to the ranchers of Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas at cost after spring wildfires destroyed over a million acres in those three states. They have agreed to do this again for the ranchers of the Northern Rockies. For information on how to sponsor a roll of wire for $50 or to make a monetary donation towards this project, click here. Also search for them online at #agcommunityrelief and #farmershelpingfarmers.



Ag Community Relief, a non-profit 501(c)3, was formed to bring relief to active farmers and ranchers that experience devastation across the United States by assembling volunteers and donations to help mitigate their suffering. Their goal is to help them get back to where they were before disaster struck.
