Oklahoma Cattlemen's Foundation Partners with Oklahoma AgCredit in Statewide Flooding Crisis Relief Effort

Mon, 17 Jun 2019 11:46:30 CDT

Oklahoma Cattlemen's Foundation Partners with Oklahoma AgCredit in Statewide Flooding Crisis Relief Effort The Oklahoma Cattlemen's Foundation (OCF) is utilizing their permanent Natural Disaster Relief Fund to foster charities, like the phenomenal $25k contribution by Oklahoma AgCredit, to aid cattlemen affected by on-going flooding and severe weather throughout Oklahoma.



“It goes to show how rural America and members of the ranching community help each other in times of need,” said Taylor Shackelford of the OCF, a charitable arm of the Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association. “This generous contribution by Oklahoma AgCredit further proves their dedication to cattlemen across the state, no matter the circumstance.”



"Different from damage that resulted from back-to-back years of wildfires, the impact flooding has on land, livestock, structures and equipment is not as quickly apparent,” said Shackelford. “The OCF is dedicated to providing maximum support as long as the funds allow, but applications won’t open immediately. OCF and Oklahoma AgCredit will work together in the weeks ahead to decide what the process will look like and will gather more complete data from affected regions.”



The duration for acceptance of Natural Disaster Relief applications is yet to be determined, but information will be announced at www.okcattlemen.org. All donations will be distributed to ranchers who have been affected by the floods. You may donate to this relief effort by mail or online. Make checks payable to Oklahoma Cattlemen's Foundation, with "Flood Relief" in the memo line and send to P.O. Box 82395, Oklahoma City, OK 73148. To donate online, visit www.okcattlemen.org.



The Oklahoma Cattlemen's Foundation was created to provide a charitable trust for the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association. The Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association is the trusted voice of the Oklahoma beef cattle industry and has members in all 77 counties in Oklahoma. To join or learn more visit www.okcattlemen.org.



Oklahoma AgCredit supports rural communities and agriculture with reliable, consistent credit and financial services. Learn more at www.okagcredit.com.
