The Executive Vice President of the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association sat down with Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays and walked Ron through the process facing the OCA and the Oklahoma cattle industry in dealing with the outbreak of wildfires on March 6th and how cattle producers have battled the tragic days that followed- dealing with thousands of cattle dying or needing to be put out of their misery, the loss of forage and feed, miles and miles of fence and more.
Hays and Kelsey also walked thru the enormous response of those outside of the affected area- providing hay, feed, waterers, fence materials and cash.
