A new organization that helped farmers and ranchers recover after wildfires burned this year in Colorado, Oklahoma and Texas is now helping farmers affected by wildfires in Montana.

“They lost all their fencing and fencing gets to be an expensive part of the rebuilding. So we worked with different organizations to round up some wire and our goal is to get a semi-load of wires sent out there. It’s just farmers helping farmers. “

That’s Eddie Fahley, vice president of the Michigan-based Ag Community Relief, who tells the Farm Bureau Federation the Western Wire Roundup was established to help western ranchers rebuild.

Ag Community Relief has already sent 12 semi loads of hay to Montana.

Anyone who wants to help with the relief effort can go to www.agcommunityrelief.com . There’s a link there where you can donate towards the wire cause on the website.
