I didn't double check this info, but do know the NCBA members Foundation is already helping hurricane victims and is soliciting more money.

Check it out at www.beef.org for more details.

As an avid supporter of charitable organizations, I would encourage everyone to donate through the Red Cross of the Salvation Army. Your money is more likely to go where it is intended.

Econ 101 and Haymaker, you are predictably and disappointingly vicious in your lies about NCBA.

Honest people would offer some semblance of validity to such serious claims.......but, don't know why we should expect that from you at this point in your posting "careers" on this site, either.

I know people who have had bad experiences with Red Cross in the past......but still I would recommend them because they have an overall pretty good track record.

The National Cattlemens' Foundation aid will be targeted by and to ranchers, a class or group of people usually overlooked for assistance in such circumstances. And my guess is that very close to, and most probably 100% of donations will be used to help those in need.

Come on folks, lets not politicize this tragedy any more than it already has been.

I wish both NCBA and R-CALF would take up donations and give those donations equally to the "Red Cross", "Salvation Army", and "Habitat for Humanity". All are worthy causes.

JUST DONATE and forget about who gets credit and what someone's motives are.

Let's give every cattlemen the benefit of the doubt on this issue.

My sole objective in posting the NCF fundraising info was to let people know that there is a means for us in agriculture to donate where the funds will help others in agriculture.

Obviously, other sources such as Red Cross, et.al. will focus on humanitarian needs first.

There are people down there who have dairies whose cattle will be ruined without power to milk them and feed them.

There are beef cattle producers whose livlihood can be helped somewhat with timely aid for finding their surviving cattle, and repairing fences.

No one is being forced to donate against their will.

We choose to donate through Thri-Vent, formerly Lutheran Brotherhood, and NCF......and applaud those who choose to give through whatever they believe are responsive organizations.
