Rollover heifer auctions are being held at 22 regional auction barns in five states. First Interstate Bank’s Mike Johnson says their foundation in Sturgis, South Dakota is sponsoring the events. He says all of the proceeds go to the ranchers relief fund to assist livestock producers hurt by the early October blizzard.
Johnson says the auctions begin October30 and run through November 14. He says financial help is badly needed for the livestock producers and the negative economic effects will hit all areas of the region’s economy.
