NETBIO Requests Local Help To Assist South Texas Ranchers in Need


If you’d like to help the Northeast Texas Cattleman’s’ Beef Improvement Organization assist flooded farmers and ranchers in the Southeast Texas area, here is a local donation opportunity sent by Dwyatt Bell, NETBIO President

The NETBIO organization is receiving donations and purchasing hay and other items that we are shipping directly to the South Texas Independent Cattlemen in Beaumont and Winnie.  Since Friday we have purchased and shipped 1,718 square bales, two pallets of feed, 640 bottles of water and some dog food.  All the items purchased were discounted to cover cost as was the shipping cost.  We have had ranchers here donate 7 loads of round hay but we do not at this time have the money for the freight.  We started raising money Friday and received $7K to start the account.  The items already shipped will run around $13K and it will cost about $8K more to ship the donated hay.  100% of the donations go to the ranchers in the Winnie TX area.  Any help would be appreciated! Thank you.

Checks should be made out to NETBIO Harvey Relief Fund and mailed to NETBIO PO Box 1250 Sulphur Springs TX, 75483

Pallets of feed shipped from Potts Feed Store in Quitman on Sunday September 3, 2017 which included cases of water and 580 square bales of hay for Winnie, Texas
