A group from Central Texas headed to Beaver, Oklahoma, Tuesday to drop off hay and feed donations for those affected by the wildfires. 

Jess McCabe, the organizer of the group, said they have collected more 1,400 bales of hay and more than 20 tons of feed. They brought 225 bales of hay on this trip. 

The trip took about 11 hours because of tire blowouts along the way. More than 20 people in semis, trucks, and trailers were part of the convoy on Tuesday.

People driving by the convoy would wave as a way of saying thank you. McCabe said several people gave them money when they were stopped at truck stops or gas stations. 

The group will be dropped off the donations to ranches in the burn zone. 

The owner of the Bailey Ranch said they lost so much pasture, the one-thousand herd of cattle had no food. Luckily, the wildfires did not kill any of their cattle. They lost more than 30 miles of fence.
