Disaster Relief Fund Opens After Texas Wildfires

The Texas & Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association announced that cattle producers impacted by wildfires in the Texas Panhandle and Western Oklahoma can now apply for financial help.

The emergency assistance is available through the group’s Disaster Relief Fund. The fund will distribute financial assistance to reduce the burdens incurred by cattle producers from wildfire damages that weren’t covered through insurance or other means of aid. The application window comes after hundreds of individuals and companies donated generous gifts in response to the second-largest wildfire event in the U.S. Donations continue to be accepted to benefit ranchers and landowners impacted by the natural disaster. Ranchers and landowners from the disaster-declared counties impacted by recent wildfires are eligible to apply in the open production period.

Applicants are also not required to be a member of the Texas & Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association to qualify for aid. For more information, go to tscra.org.
