Donations for Cattle Farmers Hit by Tornados

Posted: Updated:

The Kentucky Cattlemen's Foundation (KCF) would like to announce that they will be accepting monetary donations to address the needs of cattlemen in rebuilding fences and facilities following the storms of last week.

"Farmers across the state have been calling our office since the tornados hit wanting to know how they can help so we are working on a case-by-case basis to help farmers however we can," stated Kentucky Cattlemen's Association Executive Vice President Dave Maples.

Phone calls from some of the hardest hit areas have been received in the KCA office and are being dealt with on an individual basis.  Many farmers have had buildings and fences destroyed while others have had entire herds killed in the storms.  The monetary donations sent in will be used to directly assist producers in need and are tax deductible.  Many areas affected are also in need of fencing supplies.

"These tornados have affected so many of our neighbors and fellow cattle producers and we just want to do anything that we can to help," stated KCA President Mike Bach.

Those interested in donating to relief efforts coordinated by the Kentucky Cattlemen's Foundation can donate online at www.kycattle.org or mail a check to the office at KCF Disaster Relief Fund, 176 Pasadena Drive, Lexington, KY 40503.  For questions or more information call the office at 859-278-0899.
