Oklahoma Cattlemen's Foundation Begins Process to Distribute Relief Fund Donations to Fire Victims

Fri, 06 Jul 2018 10:27:41 CDT

Oklahoma Cattlemen's Foundation Begins Process to Distribute Relief Fund Donations to Fire Victims In mid-April fire broke out and tore across Northwest Oklahoma. The devastation was vast, affecting dozens of beef producers, but relief is underway thanks to many generous donations to the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Foundation Fire Relief Fund.



The Oklahoma Cattlemen's Foundation is a charitable arm of the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association with the goal of preserving the Oklahoma beef cattle industry and its traditions.



"Creating the relief fund and facilitating the distribution process most assuredly contributes to the Foundation's goal of preserving the beef business here in Oklahoma," said Weston Givens, President of the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association. "This week 69 beef producers, who applied for the fire relief funds, were mailed checks totaling $459,971.00."



A group of industry leaders from the area came together to evaluate applications and distribute funds based-off of individual needs.



"Thank you to the tremendous support and compassion from others, the recovery process for the affected cattlemen in the fire-stricken areas is underway," Givens said.
