Cattlemen’s Foundation Collecting Donations for Wildfire Victims

A relief fund has been established by the Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Foundation (OCF) to help ranchers affected by the ongoing wildfires in western Oklahoma. According to OCF, 100% of donations will be distributed to affected ranchers.

OCF is the charitable arm of the Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association. Monetary donations can be made online at or by sending a check to OCF at P.O. Box 82395, Oklahoma City, OK. Write “fire relief” in the memo line on the check.

“One thing we’ve learned from the wildfires in the past few years is that folks are quick to want to help those in unfortunate situations, and that is truly humbling,” said OCF Coordinator Tiffani Pruitt. “We will coordinate with the extension offices in the affected areas to organize relief efforts and to identify ranchers that are in need.”
For those interested in donating hay, call (405) 496-9329, (405) 397-7912 or (405) 590-0106.

As of late evening April 15, the Rhea fire, covering much of Dewey County, had burned an estimated 245,433 acres. Numerous smaller fires have caused damage in other areas of western Oklahoma.
