Fire Relief Resources
The Ohio Cattlemen’s Association (OCA) wants to help cattle families impacted by last week’s devastating fires in Kansas, Colorado, Oklahoma and Texas. OCA has reached out to the cattlemen’s associations in these states, and the overwhelming response has been that cash donations would be most helpful. To help with the fire relief efforts, please see below:
