The non-profit Ag Community Relief is helping ranchers in Montana rebuild fence that was destroyed in wildfires over the summer. With millions of acres burned, Ag Community Relief has established the “Western Wire Roundup” in effort to help western ranchers rebuild.
Ag Community Relief has already sent twelve loads of hay to the region, and is collecting donations to send a full semi-tractor trailer load of Sheffield barbed wire fence. The truck can hold 560 rolls.
Oklahoma Ranch Supply company Stockmen’s Feed Bunk sold fencing supplies to the ranchers of Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas at cost after spring wildfires destroyed more than one million acres in those three states. They have agreed to do the same for the ranchers of the Northern Rockies.
For information on how to sponsor a roll of wire for $50 or to make a monetary donation, visit www.agcommunityrelief.com.
