Oklahoma Farming and Ranching Foundation Donates $50,000 for Wildfire Relief at OCA Convention

Oklahoma Farming and Ranching Foundation Donates $50,000 for Wildfire Relief at OCA Convention The Oklahoma Farming and Ranching Foundation presented $50,000 to the Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Foundation’s disaster relief fund at the annual Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association convention Saturday, July 21, in Norman.

The check was presented on stage during the OCA awards banquet by representatives from Oklahoma Farm Bureau’s Oklahoma Farming and Ranching Foundation.

The funds were collected through donations by the Oklahoma Farming and Ranching Foundation to help aid farmers, ranchers and rural communities after springtime wildfires in western Oklahoma.

“We are proud to partner with the Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Foundation to directly help farmers and ranchers who were affected by this spring’s wildfires,” said David VonTungeln, president of the Oklahoma Farming and Ranching Foundation. “We know replacing fencing and property is an expensive and time-consuming task, and we’re glad to help make the road to full recovery a little bit easier with this this donation.”

“We want to thank Oklahoma Farming and Ranching Foundation for their generosity,” said Weston Givens, president of the Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Foundation. “We are very proud and honored to partner with Oklahoma Farm Bureau’s foundation to help agriculture families affected by wildfire.”

The funds will be distributed by the Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Foundation through an application process. Applications to receive fire relief assistance were due June 1.
