The Jackson County Cattlemen’s Association goes above and beyond to help their members and non-members in times of need.  Hurricane Michael destroyed fences and with that fence posts were scattered throughout, leaving cattle free to roam.  In steps the Florida Cattlemen’s Association and Executive Director Jim Handly with T-posts galore. The Florida and Alabama Hardware Supply came through with rolls of barbed wire for the Jackson County Cattlemen. 

Following the annual Farm City breakfast, 2,133 post and 24 rolls of barbed wire were distributed to 40 cattle producers who stopped by the Ag Center (Farm Center on Highway 90).  Jackson County Cattlemen’s Association president Jeff Snell was all smiles as he worked loading the posts and rolls of wire into truck after truck to help farmers in need, “This is what it’s all about, helping our fellow cattle producers.  The Association works hard to have money available to help when not only our cattlemen are in need but those in other associations throughout the state when catastrophes hit. Often, insurance does not cover all the damages and losses cattlemen have. We appreciate what the state association did as well as the Florida and Alabama Hardware Supply.”
