2017 Young and Beginning Farmer & Rancher Relief Fund
On March 6, wildfires swept through an estimated 1.5 million acres in Texas, Kansas, Oklahoma and Colorado. Thousands of cattle were lost, homes gone and futures left looking uncertain. But the beauty in this is the outpouring of friends across the United States asking what they can do to help.
To be a young or beginning farmer or rancher means you’ve chosen the path less traveled. Your drive is your passion, not your paycheck. It’s often a bumpy path without the added stress from a natural disaster such as this.
This fund has been created for those who want to help, specifically, young and beginning farmers and ranchers from Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma & Texas who were affected by these wildfires.
You can help young and beginning farmers and ranchers impacted by fires in Kansas, Texas, Oklahoma and Colorado rebuild. Every donation helps.
The Outlaw Truck & Tractor Pullers Association will be making a $500 donation to this relief effort. We are asking any pullers that are interested in joining our efforts to issue their check to Kansas Farm Bureau Foundation, put YF&R Fire Relief in the memo line and send it to Susan Dunklau, 4638 CO RD P 11, Arlington NE 68002. We will send all proceeds to this Young and Beginning Farmer Rancher Relief Fund.
