Cattlemen Launch Disaster Relief Effort

Funds needed for fencing and other infrastructure material.

The National Cattlemen's Foundation, in cooperation with the National Cattlemen's Beef Association, is launching a disaster relief effort to assist farm and ranch families impacted by flooding and blizzards in North Dakota.

"One of the greatest needs besides feed and hay right now is fencing materials. Disaster relief funds can be utilized to assist producers in securing posts, wire and clips and rebuilding their infrastructure," says Julie Ellingson, executive vice president of the North Dakota Stockmen's Association.

Every dollar contributed will directly assist families struggling to keep their farms and ranches operating under these difficult conditions. In conjunction with the foundation, the North Dakota Stockmen's Association will manage distribution of all funds donated.

Contributions by check can be made payable to National Cattlemen's Foundation, with "disaster relief" included on the memo line. Donation checks should be mailed to:

National Cattlemen's Foundation

Centennial, CO 80112
