South Dakota Rancher’s Relief Fund Picks Up Over $ 24,000

The South Dakota Ranchers Relief Fund, an effort by the Cattlemen’s Association, Stock Growers and Sheep Growers is off to a fast start. Cattlemen’s Executive Director Jodie Anderson says as of Friday, just under $ 25,000 has been raised to help producers hurt by the early October blizzard.

Anderson says they’ve not only picked up monetary contributions but also other assistance.

She says it’s going to take years to recover what was lost from the effects of the blizzard.

Anderson says those interested in helping out or donating can go on line through the Black Hills Area Community Foundation. She says they’ve also set up a facebook  account. For more information go to SDcattlemen.org.
