Cattle raisers in southern Louisiana suffered tremendous infrastructure losses from the effects of Hurricane Laura’s storm surge. Many miles of fence were destroyed.
Want to help? TSCRA Director Coleman Locke says one of the most pressing needs is for fencing materials — posts (either wood or steel), staples, clips and wire.
Anyone in the Houston area who would like to donate materials can contact the Texas Department of Agriculture’s Houston office at 713-921-8200 to arrange pickup.
Alternatively, monetary donations for materials may be sent to:
