South Dakota Group Raising Funds For SDSU Cow Calf Unit

A group of South Dakota cattle producers, SDSU foundation representatives and SDSU Extension officials are kicking off a major fund raising campaign today with a sale at Mitchell Livestock Auction. State Cattlemen’s Association President Cory Eich says they’re calling it ‘’ Send a Cow To College” and their aim is raising $ 1 million for SDSU’s new cow calf unit to be constructed on campus.

Eich says the new SDSU cow calf unit has several benefits for everyone in the state whether you’re a cattle producer, student or not.

Eich says their goal is to raise the million dollars this fall and hopefully have the funding in place to be able to start construction next year. He says pledges will be taken as well. For more information just google  ‘’Send a Cow to College’’ and it’ll direct you to the SDSU foundation web site with all the details.
