Kentucky rising above tornado aftermath

published: December 16th 2021

Over the weekend all of us were shocked and also saddened by the loss and destruction resulting from the tornado outbreaks, particularly those that devastated much of Western Kentucky. Not only were there many devastating personal losses in communities across Kentucky, but also significant damage to agricultural infrastructure.

Many have ask how we can help. The Kentucky Cattlemen’s Association office has been in touch with local, state and national contacts to determine what needs there are and how we can assist. Presently they are accepting donations for Tornado Relief through their Kentucky Cattlemen’s Foundation. All donations will be used to help local producers in need of farm supplies. These donations can be made by calling 859-278-0899, through Paypal at https://www.paypal.com/donate/… or by mail at:

KY Cattlemen’s Foundation
Attn: Tornado Relief
176 Pasadena Drive
Suite 4
Lexington, KY 40503

For those interested in donating to restore the UK research station at Princeton, their immediate needs include fencing supplies and solar chargers (they will likely be without electricity for quite some time). You’re invited to contact UK Assistant Extension Professor of Beef Cattle Nutrition Katie VanValin, at 270-792-4231, Princeton herd manager Blair Knight at 270-350-5460, or the Hardin County Extension office at 270-765-4121 for an update on supply needs and how best to get them there.
