Texas Panhandle Farmers’, Ranchers’ Losses Estimated Over $21 Million
Georgia Farm Bureau
Early reports from the Texas Panhandle paint a grim picture of what remains following three wildfires that scorched nearly half a million acres last week. The three fires-Lefors, Perryton and Dumas-caused at least $21 million in agricultural losses, according to early estimates from Texas A&M AgriLife Extension. The estimate does not yet account for the loss of equipment in the fires.
