ND Fund Gives $200K To Blizzard-Stricken Ranchers

ND Fund Gives $200K To Blizzard-Stricken Ranchers
October 2013


The North Dakota Stockmen's Foundation has awarded nearly $200,000 to North Dakota and South Dakota ranchers who lost livestock in an early October blizzard.

The foundation issued the last of its aid checks to ranchers this week. About $163,000 went to producers in North Dakota. The rest went to South Dakota, where a separate relief fund set up by cattle and sheep groups in that state has raised more than $4 million in donations from around the country.

The storm hit Oct. 4-5 with surprising intensity, bringing rain, heavy snow and strong winds to the region

The blizzard was much more devastating to South Dakota's livestock industry, with losses of cattle, sheep, horses and bison estimated at more than 43,000. There is no firm number on North Dakota losses, but they are believed to number more than 1,000 animals.
