North Dakota Stockmen’s Group Has Ranchers Relief Fund

The North Dakota Stockmen’s Association has developed a relief fund for their producers impacted by the early October Blizzard.  Executive Director Julie Ellingson says the response so far has been good. She says those needing help can find an application form on their website.

Ellingson says their two groups are helping producers in both North and South Dakota with relief donations.

She says those wanting to nominate someone for assistance or apply for help can go to their website at ndstockmen.org.  North Dakota losses are still being tallied and are thought to be in the tens of thousands.
