South Dakota Livestock Groups Announce Plan To Donate To Ranchers

South Dakota Livestock Groups Announce Plan To Donate To Ranchers

At a news conference today, representatives of the South Dakota Stock Growers, Sheep Growers and Cattlemen’s Association announced they’ve developed an application form for doling out rancher relief fund donations.  Stock Growers Executive Director Silvia Christen says that form is available on their web site and they hope to help those who suffered the most from the blizzard right away.

Christen says the fund now has about $ a million dollars in it with more donations coming in. She says they’ll be taking applications starting this afternoon and going through the month of December. Christen says once they’ve received some applications they’ll know better how much they can send out to each rancher.

She says they’ll also take nominations for those who need assistance. Those can be made at their web site at RanchersRelief.org as well. Christen says donations are tax deductible because the fund administrator the Black Hills Area Community Foundation has 501 C 3 status.
