$25,000 donated to Colorado fire relief
Premier Farm Credit, American AgCredit, Farm Credit of Southern Colorado and CoBank have announced they will donate a total of $25,000 to the Colorado Farm Bureau’s Disaster Relief Fund to help the farmers and ranchers impacted by the recent fire in Logan and Phillips counties.
“Agriculture is the backbone of northeast Colorado; both the short- and long-term impacts of this fire are tremendous,” said Rick Sanger, president and CEO of Premier Farm Credit, based in Sterling. “We’re grateful that together with CoBank, American AgCredit and Farm Credit of Southern Colorado we can make a meaningful contribution to the Colorado Farm Bureau Disaster Relief Fund.”
The fast-moving grass fire consumed more than 30,000 acres, killing livestock, damaging crops and destroying homes, equipment and farmsteads in its path. The fire is out, but the short- and long-term impacts to agriculture and life in the area will be felt for years to come.
