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.
Every donation helps.
Thanks to a generous donation of $50,000 from Monsanto, every donation will be matched dollar for dollar.
If you'd like to mail in a check instead, you can send it to:

And put "YF&R Fire Relief" in the memo on your check.
