The Texas Panhandle and western Oklahoma are facing devastation due to several wildfires that have and continue to burn hundreds of thousands of acres.

“Thank you for the outpouring of support we have already received from so many of you. It is very much appreciated,” said Ben Weinheimer, president and CEO of the Texas Cattle Feeders Association.

“As the devastation continues and eventually rebuilding begins, we encourage the cattle feeding community to come together to help in any way they can, whether it be prayers, donating materials, time or money. For your convenience, listed below are some options for donating hay, fencing materials and other supplies, cash to disaster relief funds or cash to the food bank beef fund.”
