Pasture Fencing and Hay on its Way

Pasture Fencing and Hay on its Way

Recent prairie fires swept through large areas of Oklahoma, Kansas and Colorado, and the results were disastrous. Buildings, homes, and pasture fences were destroyed and Orphan Grain Train can help. OGT is in the process of accepting semi-loads of donated hay as well as locating truckers with the proper equipment for hauling hay. As this portion of the relief effort takes shape, we will share the generously donated hay with those who lost their livestock forage because of the fires.
In order to help reduce the cost of rebuilding pasture fencing, Orphan Grain Train has already purchased two semi-trailer loads of high quality fencing. The first load of 22 pallets of pasture fencing arrived for the farmers affected by the prairie fires near Haxtun, CO. Each of the 22 pallets contains 27 rolls of fencing with each roll costing OGT $59.00. If you would like to help donate towards the cost of purchasing the pasture fencing for the farmers please make your checks payable to:

You can also contribute to the Domestic Disaster by clicking on the Donate Now button. We appreciate your support of the relief efforts for the farmers that have lost so much in these tremendous prairie fires. The picture is of the prairie fencing being delivered to the Norfolk warehouse then loaded and transported to farmers in Haxtun, Colorado where a Cattleman’s association will be responsible for final distribution. The destination for the second load is Ashland, Kansas and will be distributed in a similar fashion. It is only through the generosity of our supporters that Orphan Grain Train is able to provide this much-needed relief. We are grateful.
