South Dakota Rendering Contractor Picks Up 1400 Dead Cattle Carcasses

Dakota Rendering of Freeman, South Dakota which contracted with the state worked for three weeks and just finished up yesterday clearing livestock carcasses along state right’s of way.  Dakota Rendering Owner Ray Stangler says they picked up over 1,000 head of dead animals killed by the early October blizzard.

Stangler’s crew started out with six trucks conducting the cleanup. He says it will take a long time before the whole process of dead carcass removal is completed. Now it’s up to private individuals to finish their own removal now that the state contract work is done.

Stangler says it’s the biggest pick up job they’ve had since 8 years ago when they cleaned up 5,000 dead animals combined in South Dakota and Nebraska that died from heat.
