Livestock Groups Start Ranchers Relief Fund

Livestock Groups Start Ranchers Relief Fund

South Dakota Cattlemen, Stock Growers and Sheep Grower groups have formed a state ranchers relief fund to help producers impacted by this past weekend’s blizzard. Cattlemen Association Executive Director Jodie Anderson says because they’re looking at thousands of livestock losses that are continually adding up, the groups felt a need to provide this help.

Anderson says the fund is set up through the Black Hills Area Community Foundation. She says those interested in helping out can go on line or mail in their donations.

She says the South Dakota livestock groups are hoping creation of this fund will prompt Congress to complete a farm bill soon so producers can have access to federal disaster aid.
