South Dakota Ranchers Relief Fund Now At Over $ 2 Million Dollars

South Dakota Ranchers Relief Fund Now At Over $ 2 Million Dollars

The South Dakota Ranchers Relief fund received two major donations this week from the South Dakota Auto Dealers and Ethanol Producer Groups.  The fund was put together by the State Stock Growers, Cattlemen and Sheep Growers groups. Stockmen’s Executive Director Silvia Christen says this week’s donations brought in over $ 143,000 to help producers hurt by the October blizzard.

Christen says the total relief fund has grown significantly with more donations coming in each day.

She says applications for help came in slowly at first but are now picking up steam. She says the livestock group’s rancher committee is working hard to process the applications and get the needed funding out.

Christen says for applications or information just go to their web site at ranchersrelief.org.
