SD Rancher Fund Set To Dole Out $3.3 Million
PIERRE, SD -

Organizers of a donation fund set up to help South Dakota ranchers hurt by an early October blizzard are preparing to distribute an additional $3.3 million to producers.

The Rancher Relief Fund earlier doled out about $775,000.

The fund was established by the South Dakota Stockgrowers Association, the South Dakota Cattlemen's Association and the South Dakota Sheep Growers Association. It is being managed by the Black Hills Area Community Foundation. It has received money from more than 5,000 donors in all 50 states.

Stockgrowers Association President Bob Fortune says about 600 ranchers applied for help. They have reported losses of 43,000 cattle, sheep and horses in the Oct. 4-5 blizzard that hit with surprising intensity and dumped up to 4 feet of snow in western South Dakota.
