“The recent storm accompanied by freezing temperatures and high winds caused unprecedented devastation to many of our ranching neighbors in South Dakota,” says Executive Vice President Jim Magagna.

“WSGA has been told that losses of cattle have exceeded 20,000 head. Should you be interested in making in-kind donations of livestock to repopulate herds, we urge you to contact the South Dakota Cattlemen’s Association, the South Dakota Stockgrowers or the South Dakota Sheep Growers.”

The majority of cattle losses are found in South Dakota where the Rancher Relief Fund is now accepting donations. To donate, visit the website or send checks to Black Hills Community Area Foundation/SD Rancher Relief Fund made out to: Rancher Relief Fund, P.O. Box 231, Rapid City, S.D. 57709.

For those looking to donate to Nebraska, donations can be sent to the Cattlemen Relief Fund at the Chadron Community Foundation, P.O. Box 1125, Chadron, NE  69337.  end mark
