Donations sought for Texas ranchers hit by wildfires

Financial donations to ranchers affected by the recent Texas wildfires are encouraged by the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association (TSCRA) through the Texas Department of Agriculture’s State of Texas Agriculture Relief (STAR) fund.

The STAR fund will use the donations to help purchase hay and fencing supplies for ranchers in the affected areas. Donations are tax deductible and can be made at http://www.texasagriculture.gov/starfund or by calling 512-475-1615.

“Many ranchers across parts of West Texas have been completely devastated by the raging wildfires,” said Joe Parker Jr., TSCRA president. “Thousands of grazing acres have burned, cattle have been lost and hundreds of miles of fences have disappeared. Thankfully, most of these fires are under control; however, the dry and windy conditions continue to pose serious threats, which has us all feeling a little uneasy.”
