Thousands of family farms and ranch operations in the High Plains region have been devastated by a recent snow and ice storm. Many remain without power and other utilities, and roads are impassable in many areas due to heavy snow, icy conditions, and downed utility lines.
The National Cattleman’s Beef Association (NCBA) has established a disaster relief effort specifically dedicated to helping cattlemen affected by these conditions. This relief campaign will be similar to NCBA’s recent hurricane relief efforts, which assisted thousands of farm and ranch families in need in the Gulf Coast Region.
NCBA is coordinating this effort in cooperation with the National Cattlemen’s Foundatoin (NCF) and state and local cattlemen’s associations. Monetary donations can be made to the National Cattlemen’s Foundation. These donations are tax deductible, and 100 percent of every contribution will directly assist families struggling to keep their farms and ranches operating under these difficuly conditions.
Credit Card donations can be made by calling 1866-BEEF-USA (866-233-3872) with Visa, MasterCard,and American Express. Online contributions can also be made here.
Contributions by check can be made payable to the National Cattlemen’s Foundation, with "disaster relief" included on the memo line. These checks can be mailed to:
