According to Michael Kelsey, Executive Vice President of the OCA, "I spoke with Jim Handley, the Executive Vice President of the Florida Cattlemen's late last week. He shared that he has never seen devastation like this in his lifetime in Florida. Homes, fences, facilities, trees...all completely wiped out. Their most pressing need is funds to purchase specific supplies such as fencing."
