Land O’Lakes, Inc., AFC Feed, LLC, and Triple Crown Nutrition, Inc. come together to donate animal feed in wake of Alabama tornadoes

Apr 07, 2021

Land O’Lakes, Inc., in coordination with AFC Feed, LLC and Triple Crown Nutrition, Inc. are committed to providing 86,000 pounds of animal feed to shelters lodging lost and misplaced animals due to the recent tornadoes that devastated Calhoun, Talladega, and Shelby counties in Alabama.
 
Multiple deadly tornadoes tore across the state of Alabama on Thursday, March 25, leading to at least five deaths and multiple injuries. Damage was significant and storm cleanup is still underway. The damage has caused animals to be separated from their farms, and many shelters are gathering animals and lodging them until they can be identified by their owners. Land O’Lakes, AFC Feed, LLC, and Triple Crown are donating 86,000 pounds in support until animals are reunited with their owners. 
 
“As a farmer-owned cooperative, Land O’Lakes is focused on supporting our farmers and members, their families and their communities when disaster hits. We know from experience that many horse and animal owners feel like their animals are an integral part of their family. We’re proud to support these animals until they find their way home again and their families are reunited,” says Morgan Kinross-Wright, Vice President, Community Relations at Land O’Lakes, Inc. and Executive Director of the Land O’Lakes Foundation.
 
“We are blessed to be able to provide needed assistance with feeding misplaced livestock, we feel it is our responsibility to help others in need that have been effected by the powerful storms that swept through our area,” says David Riggs, General Manager at AFC Feed, LLC.
 
“Our mission at Triple Crown is to ensure horses have the nutrition they need — and when disaster strikes that need becomes even greater. Partnering with Land O’Lakes and AFC for the care and well-being of horses in Alabama impacted by the recent destruction is simply the right thing to do, and we are honored to be able to help,” said Rob Daugherty, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Triple Crown Nutrition. “We hope by providing optimal nutrition it will help to provide peace of mind until these horses can be reunited with their families.”
