SD Rancher Relief Fund Surpasses $5 Million

SD Rancher Relief Fund Surpasses $5 Million
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

A relief fund set up to help South Dakota ranchers in the wake of an early October blizzard has surpassed $5 million.

South Dakota Stockgrowers Association Executive Director Silvia Christen says $4.2 million has been doled out to about 600 ranchers, and a decision will be made in early April on distributing the rest.

The fund was set up by the Stockgrowers, the South Dakota Cattlemen's Association and the South Dakota Sheep Growers Association after the Oct. 4-5 blizzard that killed an estimated 43,000 head of livestock in the state. It has received donations from around the country.

Christen says officials are "blown away" by the outpouring of support.

This article has been revised to reflect the following correction:
In the first sentence, the incorrect amount was listed as billion instead of million.
