Wildfire Relief Effort – Fence Removal May 27-29

TCU Ranch Management Alumni

TCU alumni, friends, and employees, let’s come together as a labor force to tear out miles of fire damaged fence May 27-29 (Memorial Day weekend) in Canadian, TX. The outpouring of support for area producers affected by the March wildfire has been incredible! The ashes have settled and the range is starting to recover, so now it’s time to start the rebuilding process! Let’s come together as a group and show area producers the compassion and work ethic of the TCU Ranch Management Program!
