The Oklahoma Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture is gathering donations for Louisiana farmers and ranchers affected by Hurricane Ida.
Making landfall exactly 16 years after Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Ida is ranked in the top three strongest hurricanes to make landfall in Louisiana.
As recovery efforts will last into the coming months, farmers and ranchers are in need of assistance, as much of the forage, grain and fencing was carried away by water and wind.
All hurricane relief donations will be sent to the Louisiana Farm Bureau Federation Disaster Relief Fund to assist producers in the affected area.
Send checks to OKFB Foundation for Agriculture, Attn: Holly Carroll, 2501 N Stiles, Oklahoma City, OK 73105, by Oct. 20. For more information, contact Holly Carroll at (405) 523-2300.
