Heifers For South Dakota Gathering Donations For Blizzard Victims

Heifers For South Dakota Gathering Donations For Blizzard Victims

A group of producers from five states are banding together to provide help for fellow producers in Western South Dakota hurt by the blizzard.  Kim Sheperd of Mills, Nebraska works with the group and says they are taking donations now.

She says several animals have been donated so far and they’re hoping for more to help Western South Dakota ranchers begin rebuilding their herds.

Sheperd says they’ll get all the donated cattle ready and will take care of transporting them out West.

Those interested in donating  can e mail Sheperd at  Dsheperd@threerivers.net or phone 605—469—5533.   States represented by Heifers for South Dakota include: South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, Iowa and Nebraska.
