Livestock Drop Points Opened In Pennington County South Dakota

Livestock Drop Points Opened In Pennington County South Dakota

Livestock drop points have opened in Pennington County, South Dakota to help producers who lost animals from the early October blizzard. ALexa White is the Assistant Emergency Management Director in Pennington County.

White says they’re not sure just how many livestock died from the storm but those numbers are adding up.

She advises producers to have all their documentation that includes locations where their livestock died, any pictures, vaccinations, hauling receipts, any tags on hand for when any funds become available through government  programs. She says they have a map up of their livestock drop points on their web site at rcpcem.com.
