In early March wildfires ravaged parts of Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas, burning more than one million acres and killing thousands of head of cattle and other livestock. Michigan farmers are stepping up by making donations and hauling much needed hay and supplies to this devastated area. To read about the effort, click here. If you would like to donate, are leading a convoy or want to help in some other way please call the office at 1-888-323-6601 to be put in contact with the appropriate people. Click here for a list of places accepting monetary donations for the ranchers. As a fundraiser, Ag Community Relief has developed a Tumbleweed Project where burned wire from the affected ranchers will be turned into decorative tumbleweeds that will be sold and the money then used to purchase new wire for the ranch.
