Colorado Farm Bureau has set up a disaster fund to aid farmers and ranchers directly impacted by the recent flooding in northeast Colorado. 100 percent of the funds will go directly to aiding these producers as they face the aftermath of this disaster.
This flooding has led to a large impact within the agricultural industry within these areas, including damaged fields, stranded livestock, damaged facilities and infrastructure, including roadways and waterways.
Checks payable to Colorado Farm Bureau Foundation, cash and donations through PayPal are being accepted at this time. Please note Disaster Fund-Colorado Floods in the memo line. They can be sent to:
Colorado Farm Bureau Foundation
