The Brazoria County Fairgrounds is being utilized as the Livestock Supply Point, the hub for collection of hay, feed, water and other supplies for animals, ranging from cats and chickens to horses and cattle. Donations such as square and round hay bales and water buckets are pouring in from the community and local producers to assist other producers who may be forced to wait to access forage for an extended time. “There’s a lot of neighbor helping neighbor,” John O’Connell, Brazoria County coastal and marine resources agent, stated. “It’s been an amazing community effort to help each other through this.” AgriLife Extension livestock experts said producers should also be aware of the possibility there may be increased parasite activity in livestock as a result of the excessive moisture.
Inquiries about reclaiming animals or donating supplies can be made through the office at 979-864-1558.
