As Texas continues to battle record-setting wildfires, Texas Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples announced July 13, the deadline to apply for the first-round of funding for “Operation New Fences” has been extended to Friday, July 22, for ranchers needing financial assistance to rebuild fences.

With more than 3 million acres burned, 242 counties under burn bans (the most ever) and temperatures reaching record highs, fire experts are calling this one of the worst fire seasons in Texas history. According to the Texas Forest Service, six of the 10 largest fires ever recorded in Texas have occurred this year, scorching more than 5,000 miles of ranch fences -- more miles than needed to fence the entire perimeter of Texas.

The fund was created solely with monetary donations from private individuals and companies to help ranchers rebuild fences through an initiative called, “Operation New Fences.

A second round of funding is planned and needed in the fall to help additional farmers and ranchers impacted by ongoing wildfires. To make a donation to the STAR Fund, or for more information, visit www.TexasAgriculture.gov and click on STAR Fund.

For more information, ranchers may call 512-475 -1615.
