"Oklahoma cattle producers know, firsthand, the tremendous need after a devastating natural disaster. Many have benefitted from the awesome generosity of fellow cattle producers from around the nation," said Weston Givens, President of the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association. "Now it is time for us to help our brothers and sisters in Florida."



The OCF is sending a funds to the Florida Cattlemen's Foundation and Georgia Cattlemen's Foundation to help afflicted cattle producers. The OCF is a charitable arm of the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association.



"We invite OCA members to consider sending their own funds to help as well," Givens said.



Funds should be sent to the Florida Cattlemen's Foundation, P.O. Box 421929, Kissimmee, Florida 34742 or Georgia Cattlemen's Foundation, P.O. Box 27990 Macon, GA 31221 with 'Hurricane Relief Fund' in the memo.



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."
