Local ag organizations facilitating wildfire relief effort

A collaborative local effort is underway to solicit financial contributions to help with the extensive relief efforts for wildfire victims in Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas and Colorado. Over 1.5 million acres were lost to wildfires in these states, with over 5000 mature cows and an undetermined number of calves perishing. Thousands of miles of fence and numerous farm buildings were destroyed with multi-million dollar losses incurred by many farm and ranch families, and the rebuilding process will be long and slow.

Participating local organizations include the county Farm Bureaus in Carroll, Jo Daviess, Ogle, Stephenson and Winnebago/Boone counties; the Jo Daviess, Ogle and Stephenson County Beef Associations; Northwest Illinois Holstein Association; Northwest Illinois Forage and Grasslands Council, and the local Farm Service Agency offices.

Individuals and groups wishing to donate are invited to make out their check to either:

“Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Foundation”

(with “Fire Relief” in the memo line)


Kansas Livestock Foundation

(with “Wildfire Relief Fund” in the memo line)

Checks may be mailed or dropped off through May 31 at the following county Farm Bureau offices:
